Wilting Leaves On Hydrangea
We have a hydrangea about 5 ft tall that gets beautiful white flowers in the late summer - it's my wife's favorite. The leaves are now wilting badly and I am very worried about it. Well, more worried about me, but, that's beside the point.
About 5 weeks ago it was looking raggedy so I cut all all the dead "twigs" on it - they were very brittle.
3 weeks ago I planted some new daisies ajacent(couple feet)to it in the bed. We've been watering the daisies daily.
About 2 weeks ago i put one of those fertilizer shrub stakes 3 feet from it - and I pulled what was left of the stake the other day after it started wilting.
Did I totally stress this hyrdrangea out that now it is going to die? Please help, it could save my life!
