Additional notes on fall availability by Susan of Hilverda De Boer:
The ‘Fresh’ or Solid/Spring color season is really in the ‘off’ season time, however growers still have limited production available…. So this means smaller heads, limited production and higher prices.
The Purples of course are still in high demand, however common complaint is that heads are small and prices high… this is typical for a spring color hydrangea in fall production sadly. I do always encourage our clients to write a note to remind themselves for next year October weddings to get a premium price for purple hydrangeas and to expect them to decline in head size from the previous September month 🙂
White (Schneeball) and certain varieties (like Lollypop and Magical Revolution series) which are strongest in the spring season are still around, however are especially small in late season. These varieties are known to be a more compact smaller headed varieties in the best of season, however in late season it becomes even more pronounced in the compact sizing.
However the Antique season is strong… many muted and mingled hues of greens, burgundies, smoky rose and amethyst. Supply is steady throughout October. November and December will decline to mostly the Green/Red variety. The Dutch Hydrangea season then will go off season completely until next year April when the ‘Fresh’ Solid color season will return bursting with Spring vibrant colors !
