I three varied lacecap Hyrangea which didn't bloom this year due to the crazy spring Zone 6. Should they be pruned or just leave them alone. I have had excellent results with these beauties over the years. Please advise!!

Personally, I would wait until spring to prune them. Pruning now could result in removing next year's flowers (if they bloom on old wood) and could also stimulate new growth now while the shrubs are preparing to go dormant.
