Hydrangea Is Turning Black

Famldm added on June 11, 2011 | Answered

I recently planted a hydrangea and now the leaves are turning black. What do I need to do? It is getting a half day of full sun,  and the soil was a good mix of topsoil and fertilizer. Thank you.

You don't say where the black is on the leaf. If its around the edges, you plant is suffering from transplant shock, sunscald (because it was grown in a shadier spot than yours) or lack of water (possibly before you bought it). If this is the case, your plant will recover. If the dark spots are in the center of the leaf, it's probably disease. Dig it up and return it to the store.
