  1. My hydrangea has not bloomed in two years now. I am thinking of just gutting it and planting something new.

  2. Judith, you don’t even need to dry them; they just dry naturally. That’s a great way to enjoy those flowers through winter. Thanks for the tip!

  3. My neighbor has the variety that turn a lovely pinkish-bergundy ,and dry in those colors. Cut them and they make a lovely bouquet for your home. They are long-lasting. No need to water, just stick them in a large vase and ENJOY for many months!!

  4. Actually, paniculata hydrangeas benefit from severs pruning in either fall or early spring, as they set buds on new wood. This allows the bush to produce long stems for cutting in the next growing season.
