Answer: If you've just recently planted your Endless Summer hydrangea, it's natural to expect the leaves to look stressed. As soon as the roots become established, the plant should perk up and begin growing lush and healthy leaves. Holes in the leaves can be caused by caterpillars. In your area's summer heat, I suspect the pests are munching the leaves at dusk rather than during the daytime. Caterpillars can be the larvae of butterflies or of moths so I wouldn't recommend treating your plant to get rid of them. Instead, know that the leaves with holes will soon be shed and healthy new leaves will be produced. Best wishes with your garden!
