First of all thank you so much for responding to my question weeks ago. I have another question. We live out of Chicago and are currently enjoying the newest plant in our garden which is hydrangea endless summer. But we have no clue on what is going to happen when winter returns. What should we do to take care of it and make sure it comes back next summer? Should we cover, cut it, or just leave it as it is now? Please let us know. And, more POWER to MONROVIA !!!

Glad you found our advise helpful! Endless Summer is a perpetual flowering big-leaf Hydrangea that blooms virtually all season long. And because Endless Summer can flower repeatedly on new wood, you can be confident that regardless of whether the plant dies back to the crown or is trimmed at the wrong time, you'll still get wonderful flowers that grow all season. Endless Summer is remarkably hardy, even to Zone 4, but if your plant dies down to soil level during the winter, it will send up new flowering stems the following year. There's nothing you need to do to with your hydrangea this fall or winter; simply cut it back in early spring to remove any winter killed wood. Best wishes with your garden!
