Question by pvaugh

My hydrangeas were blue/purple when I planted them about 2 months ago. They get morning sun afternoon shade and water 10 minutes every day and are turning pale white. Why?

The flowers are aging rapidly, perhaps from the heat or possibly from overwatering. Your hydrangea will be happier with a deep soaking every 3-4 days. Daily watering can keep the roots too moist and stress the plant. Try adjusting the watering schedule and your hydrangea will be happier.
