I have a sort of a wierd question???
My question is about my Light O' Day variegated Hydrangea and I am in a zone 5b. If I decided to every fall cut it down to 8-10 inches and mulched it heavily were would the flowers be??? I know the foilage would grow back healthy but would the flowers only be located at the bottom of the plant or top?? Also I know I would be cutting off most of my flowers but would be happy with a hand full if they were located middle to top of the plant.
It is a beautiful Hydrangea, but even with double burlap and stuffed with leaves seams most sensative to the winter weather. I love the spot it is located in for just the foilage alone, but as I have posted before on a recent thread I am sick of looking at burlap in the spring. Especially with this hydrangea since it seems like a coin flip at best every year on if I receive a few flowers versus many. Thank you in advance for anyone who can answer my question!
