‘Endless Summer’ Hydrangea Care

Not clear on whether I should cut off brown blooms that have passed or leave on through winter. If left on, cut off in spring? Thank you very much! Monica Wilson

Yes, you should "deadhead" the hydrangea, which means cutting off the faded flower heads, in the early to mid fall. Cut them just under where the dead flowers are so that you don't damage the rest of the branch.
