The Q&A Archives: Frost-bitten Hydrangeas

Question: Hi!

Due to a hard frost the past two nights in MA, my hydrangea bushes (nikko blue and climbing) which looked promising so far suddenly look bad with black wilted leaves. Is there any way I can undo the damage for this season?

Thanks for your help.


Answer: Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to repair badly frost damaged tissues. Wait a few days and then trim away the worst of the damage.
