The Q&A Archives: Hydrangea Blooms Turning Brown

Question: Newly planted blue hydrangea has blossomed, but blooms then turned brown; should I deadhead or snip off old blooms? The plant is growing new leaves almost daily.

Answer: It sounds like your hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla) is settling in nicely. If you find the browned flowers unsightly, by all means go ahead and trim them off. Enjoy your hydrangea!
