The Q&A Archives: Blooming; Bluebird Hydrangea

Question: I received a bluebird hydrangea this past Mother'sDay; it wasin bloom; it is no longer blooming; is that it for the summer? other hydrangeas seem to bloom all summer.

Answer: Somtimes hydrangeas that are forced to bloom early for the holidays for instance do not continue to bloom over as long a period as they might in the garden. The transplanting process can also cause them to go into a bit of a shock and give up blooming early. Ill timed pruning can also cause it to stop blooming. If all goes well it should be back on a regular summer schedule next year. I am sorry it took us so long to respond to your question.
