Heavenly Hydrangeas

Chris Condon and Bonnie Garrison, the husband-and-wife team behind Pollen in Atlanta, create arrangements that showcase the many virtues of this beloved garden staple

“I remember the huge hydrangea hedge we had when I was a little girl, and cutting armloads to bring inside. Today they’re still my go-to flower, but I’ve since discovered so many different varieties. I love the saturated color and weight they bring to an arrangement.” –BONNIE GARRISON
