I purchased a brand new Annabelle hydrangea in mid April. The first location I planted it seemed to be too much sun so about 2 weeks ago I moved it in between 2 pine trees seemingly with better shade. Now it is looking like it is dying and half the plant is already dead. What can I do to save it? Thank you! Kristen
Half of Annabelle Hydrangea Dying

Bend the branches; do the bend or snap off and break?
Cut back the branches that are dead.
Your Hydrangea is likely quite stressed with 2 transplants.
Make sure you are watering each day, and that the soil is moist but never soggy.
If the roots are still alive, your plant can recover.
