I planted a hydrangea this spring and it's doing quite well, except some of the blossoms are brown (not crunchy) and look like what I would deadhead on other perennials.
It obviously needed more water on one occasion b/c it was all wilted. However, it popped back within 20 mins. of watering. I don't know that this had anything to do w/the browning, but maybe.
I've read about pruning hydrangeas, but I wanted to know if I can deadhead just the ugly blossoms. And if I do, will new flowers take their place?
Thanks for any help.
