The Q&A Archives: Hydrangea-some Of The Leaves Are Dry And Wilting

Question: The plant was doing well, then i notices that on some of the branches the new leaves are turning brown & wilting, what is the reason, what can I do about it

Answer: There are several possible reasons for this to happen, but the most likely are frost damage while the leaves were younger that is only now becoming apparent, and drought. The spring has been very dry and this can cause the symnptoms you described; hydrangeas prefer an evenly moist soil and will show moisture stress unless watered during dry spells. You might also look closely for signs of insect or fungal problems.
