My grandma has had this hydrangea for 3 or 4 years now, and it has not once bloomed except that tiny little guy in the picture...that is the first and only time. She was wondering what she is doing wrong. Last year she didn't cut it back in hopes that this year it would bloom but there's just that little guy. Any suggestions?

Just curious how much sun does it get? I had 2 Endless summer Hydrangeas that I dug and gave to my son, simply because it did not get enough sun...he planted it on a west exposure and now its doing great!

If it is the kind that only blooms on old wood and Winter kills it to the ground you will not get flowers. Might need some Winter protection.
