Pink Hydrangea with Wormwood Fern Earrings


The name “hydrangea” was first coined in modern Latin in 1753 by Linnaeus.

The word is a compound of the Greek words “hydr” (a stem of the word “hydor,” which means water) and “angeion,” which means “vessel.”

The name is a testament to the cup-shaped seed pods of the flower.

The bright pink hydrangea represents “feminine vitality”. The pink hydrangea is the second most common type after the blue one.

The meaning for this color comes from France. It is said that the color changes according to the soil.

Therefore, if you raise hydrangea in alkaline soil, it tends to become pinkish.

France has more or less alkaline soil. So pink hydrangea becomes the norm in France.
