Hydrangea leaves turning white and tissue-like
Hi. My potted hydrangeas LA Dreaming, broke dormancy early so I've been putting it in front of a bright window. Today was warm so I took it outside and now the new baby leaves are turning white and a very tissue-y texture. What is happening and what can I do? Thanks in advance.

This is likely sun scald; outdoor sunlight is much stronger than indoor sun location and the tender leaves need time to transition. You should put plants in a dappled sun location and work up to a full sun.
Just shelter the plant from the bright sun until it hardens off.
