When do I prune hydranga? I have several planted in a bed and they are overgrown. Several Endless Summers and a few lady in red and glowing amber.
Thank you

The best time to prune hydrangeas, regardless of type, is in the spring, just as new growth begins. If you prune them now, they will produce new growth, which will die back during the winter months. The energy expended by the plant to produce late growth may slow growth next year or compromise flowering.
