How to Help Drying Hydrangeas Keep Their Color
It is said that if you cut your hydrangeas, rid them of their leaves, and let them dry in a vase full of clean water they will keep their color. The idea here is to let the hydrangeas soak up all of the water and they will dry gracefully in the vase from there. So if you want to preserve the color of your hydrangeas, try drying them out in a vase!
