Annabelle Hydrangea Stunted Growth - others are fine?

annabelle2010June 7, 2010

I have 5 Annabelle Hydrangeas and one is like the ugly ducking with extremely weakgrowth this year. They are all in the same spot and get same water/sun and the other 4 look good. This is 4th year and they were all fine last year. Can anyone tell me what this could be? It might get a bit more water than the others since it's in a lower spot. I have a photo of it I can show but can't figure out how to add it to this site?

Hello, annabelle2010. You have five hydrangeas in one pot? Wow! How big of pot is this one? You said that the ugly ducking is in a lower spot; is the water collecting around this hydrangea when you water? How long have they been in this pot? How big are the shrubs now?
