Question: How do I dry hydrangeas?

Answer: Hydrangea flowers can be dried by cutting the fully opened blossoms, plus several inches of stem, removing the leaves, and hanging the stems upside down in a cool, dark area, with plenty of good air circulation. When the blossoms are completely dry they will have lost some of their color, but will keep well for several years if carefully handled.
