We planted 8 hydrangea (18 in high) bushes three days ago.
The first night the temperature went below freezing. We thought we were OK planting them. The nursery had them outside; and because they were bushes we thought they would be OK. All the leaves are brown now. Is there any hope that the plant is still alive? Should we cut them back?
Please any advice or information will be very appreciated.
Thank you

The plants should survive, but it may take them a little while to leaf out again and they may not bloom this year, depending on what variety they are -- some bloom on old wood only, some bloom on new growth of the season.
