Q.Fall/Winter Care of My Lace Cap Hydrangeas

Anonymous added on November 5, 2010 | Answered

I am still not understanding how to prune my lace cap hydrangeas. They are 10 yrs old and I don’t get very many flowers and this bugs me. I usually cut them back to the ground and clean out all the dead wilted, unsightly stems and leaves each year so I end up with a neat clean bed ready for spring time. Can you please tell me what I am doing wrong as it is getting time to clean the bed now in my area? ( MD. )

Try waiting until spring to prune it. Wait until you see what survived the winter and cut off the stems that did not.
