Answer: Your hydrangea was forced into bloom and thought your winter was its normal summer blooming time. It will need to get back into a regular blooming cycle and putting it outdoors will help. Cut off the dead flowers and set your plant out in a bright but shady spot. In a week or so, move it somewhere in the garden where it will get a few hours of morning sun but shade from the hot afternoon sun. It will adapt to growing outdoors and may even bloom for you later this summer. Keep it well watered. You may want to plant it permanently outdoors. If not, you can trim it down and take it back indoors at the end of the summer. Either way your hydrangea should bloom again for you. Enjoy!
