Hi all, first time poster here. I have a hydrangea which had one 10 inch bloom this year, but the blooms look burnt. They get about 3 hours of afternoon sun; the leaves does not wilt or look burnt,only the flowers. What could be the problem?Does this always happen for newly planted hydrangeas?

3 hours of afternoon sun in zone 10 can indeed burn the blooms. A spot with morning sun and afternoon shade is best....yg

RE: burnt flowers! Please help!

I tried that but indirect sunlight still makes it wilt and it burns the flowers. Indirect is still very strong light here in malaysia, it is about 36c everyday in the shade and about 40c in direct sunlight! I have moved the plant to a place where it has indirect sunlight then gets afernoon sun at around 6-7pm. It seems to be doing ok at the moment, much less burning on the flower head.
