Q.Hydrangea Leaves Turning Black

Zone Seattle, WA 98115 | Anonymous added on December 31, 2018 | Answered

Dear Sir,

I have a problem with my hydrangea. We live in Seattle. My problem is that the leaves of my hydrangea are turning black as shown in the attached photos. Since I took those photos, even more leaves are turning black from the outer edges inward a nd then falling onto the ground. Can you tell me what the problem is and how should I treat it?

Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for whatever help you can provide.

Most Sincerely,
George Totten

Is this an indoor plant? I'm curious as to how it is still in flowering at this time! If this is outdoors, or in an area that gets chilly then this is the issue. If this is an indoor plant, then I would pin the issue down to overwatering. If this is in container, then you should only water when the first few inches of soil are completely dry. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/hydrangea/growing-hydrangeas-hydrangea-care-guide.htm
