No strawberry on hydrangea paniculata rheny
My strawberry and cream hydrangea shrub has been very disappointing in its second year... It gets 6 hours of sun a day in fertile, well drained soil. Its very healthy, and a beautiful shape, and has many blooms... problem is, as they age, the part that should darken from pink to strawberry never does... I get a pale pinky peach color which then goes to brown. Its in front of a white fence so I was counting on the strawberry for contrast... we have had an unusual amount of rain this summer... there have been a few hot dry spells during which I watered it faithfully. Everything else about the shrub is doing well. ????? Can anyone shed some light on this?
