Answer: I'm sorry you lost those beautiful blooms to deer, but luckily hydrangeas will tolerate all kinds of pruning - even by deer. Your shrub will recover and soon you will see healthy new growth appear. You may not get flowers this year - but there's a chance you will. I hope you do! You might want to place a chicken wire cylinder over what's left of the plant so deer won't browse on it while it is trying to recover. Best wishes with your hydrangea!
