forever summer hydrangea
We have five Forever Summer hydrangeas that are about 8 years old. They have bloomed profusely every year and in the past have been full of buds or young leaves by this time. We had an unusually cold winter and spring and although I covered them whenever frost was predicted, I think I may have missed one or two when out of town. It is now the end of April and we have new growth coming up from the bases but no buds on any of the old stems. I have waited hoping they would come on but there is no evidence of anything going on. The old stems are very dense and my husband is thinning them out to make room for the new growth from the base. Is there any chance we might still get some growth on old stems?
