This is my first hydrangea, Blue Heaven. Are these what could be buds? There are several all over the bush. :)

Wow, I love how lush and green it looks! Is that from the Forever and Ever series?

Hey Kentstar,

Hey your Blue Heaven looks better than most of mine! You will have buds soon, although it does not look like you have any showing yet! Some of my rebloomers are showing buds other than my Blue Heavens. I will try to snap some pics today to show you what the buds look like.

Thankyou hydrangeasnohio! I'm so new to those, I don't know what I'm looking at I guess lol.
I'm really happy with the overwintering results so far. Now, to see how it blooms.

Yea your Blue Heaven looks to have basically no die back. My 4 BH's died back to the halfway point or a little worse. I do not winter protect them. I really had to look hard but found one little bud on one of my BH's. Here is the pic of it

Here are a few other pics of some better buds on other reblooming hydrangeas in my yard.

I think I saw a couple underneath those little leaf nubs. I'll have to take a closer look tomorrow lol.

Thankyou for the pics!
