Hydrangea Macrophylla Galilee
My friend just brought me the above hydrangea in a pot wrapped with gift type wax paper. It is so sorry looking with lots of its leaves dried up and others wilting. It has about 4-5 dead flowers. I live in Las Vegas, NV and have a spot in my garden that gets morning sun and shade in afternoon. What should I do with dried leaves and flowers before I plant it? Is it okay to just pull them off and deadhead the flowers?

Yes, you can remove the dead growth and also the spent blooms.
