The Q&A Archives: Pruning Pee Gee Hydrangea

Question: We have a Pee Gee Hydrangea tree blooming now, when do we prune if, if at all?

Answer: Pee Gee Hydrangea shrubs flower on new wood of the season so any pruning should be done in winter or early spring. Pruning would be done to maintain vigor (remove a portion of the oldest branches at the base each year) or possibly to control size and overall shagginess although it is not strictly necessary to prune it at all.
