The Q&A Archives: Hydrangeas

Question: What does it mean when my hydrangea bush leaves are turning brown and curling on the edges?

Answer: Hydrangeas are deciduous, meaning they lose their leaves at the end of the summer season. I suspect your hydrangea is just going through the normal process of losing its leaves. If the crispy edges developed in the spring or early summer, I'd consider over/under watering or too much fertilizer to be the problem. But in the autumn, I suspect your shrub is just acting naturally.
