Hydranga - Knowledgebase Question

Washington, Pe
Question by kandace2211

My hydranga has not bloomed since the first yr of planting. It's been 8yrs. I have fed, trimmed and not trimmed. I have even transplanted. What am I doing wrong? It gets a few hrs of morning sun, but is safe from the afternoon. I water deep 1-2 times a week. Any suggestions?

The most common reason for your hydrangea not to bloom is winter damage. These bloom on old wood that grew the previous year, so if winter kills back the plant then there will be few or no blooms. For the same reason, pruning in spring can limit or eliminate blooming. Many varieties are root hardy in zone 5 bit not stem hardy, so I suspect hardiness is the problem rather than siting or care. I'm sorry.
