For the first time ever, my hydrangea flowers turned brown and died. What happened?

The premature aging is probably due to hot weather. Usually they retain their color for several weeks but droughty conditions or a spike in the temperature can cause them to age prematurely. Better luck with your hydrangeas next season!
