Hydrangeas represent anything that is sincerely heartfelt.

My sister, Loretta Etchison, at Retroblooms in Spokane, makes beautiful cards from pressed flowers. You can see her work from pressed hydrangea petals, rose petals, zinnia petals, etc. at

This flower is spoken of in ancient Egyptian religion. It grows from the mud at the bottom of ponds.
