Hydrangea Disease

Anonymous added on September 3, 2012 | Answered

Both of my hydrangeas have a disease, big black spots on the leaves. They were fine until a week ago. Can you tell me what this is and what I can do to make the hydrangeas healthy once again?

It could be either black spot or sooty mold. Both are treatable and, in most cases, not fatal to the plants. These articles will help:
