New Hydrangeas Wilted - Knowledgebase Question

Question by THNDROLS

I recently bought two Aannabelle hydrangeas and planted them in a partially shaded area, added the aluminum sulfate to one and lime to the other, but when I got them they had green shoots on them, now they have dried up and they look like just brown sticks growing out of the ground. I scraped the stcks down to where I could see green coming through and took off the dead areas but wll they continue to die off? Or will they come back?

year if it does resprout. If you suspect you may have added too much aluminum sulfate or lime, the best thing to do would be to dig up and move the plants to fresh soil, keep them watered and see if they pull through.
