Q.Annabelle Hydrangeas Not Blooming This Year

Zone 5 | cristina added on July 18, 2011 | Answered

My 3 year old hydrangeas bloomed the first and second year. This year, however, I only have a couple of blooms. I did not prune the branches in the spring. I am aware of the harsh winter we had and probably freeze and refreeze cycle might not have helped. I have not done anything different than what I did the last couple of years. Last year it was in full, colorful bloom, barely able to see any foliage with the blooms taking over. I heard that hydrangeas can bloom every other year. Is this true? Please help. Summer is still here and I would give anything for the beautiful blooms to adore my garden. Thank you.

Did your hydrangea freeze to the ground. The only answer I can come up with (if not) is that buds formed last Fall were damaged from the cold to the point where they just didn't burst forth for you this year.
