The Q&A Archives: Cutting back Endless Summer Hydranga in the Fall, right now?

Question: Should we cut back the Endless Summer now, or wait until spring. We have already mulched our plants. Please advise - before we get a foot of snow!!!

Thank you in advance,

Answer: Endless Summer Hydrangeas bloom on both old and new wood so pruning back now will not affect its ability to bloom next year. Wait until the foliage dies back (after the first hard frost) before pruning so you're sure your plant is dormant. Otherwise a warm spell can encourage new growth - not something you want in winter! Best wishes with your garden!
