Hydrangea Plants

hydrangeas

Zone Sequim, WA 98382 | Kathy Pitts added on September 20, 2017 | Answered

We recently moved from Virginia to Washington State. The property is heavily landscaped, predominately by lavender plants. There is one bed with several lavender plants but also several hydrangea plants. We were told to stop watering the lavender in June (before we realized we had the hydrangeas in the same bed.) Anyway, we realized to late that we should have been watering the hydrangeas and we didn't. Many of the branches are a very dark brown with no flowers. Others have blooms. My question is how far down should I cut the damaged branches. We are in Sequim, on the Olympic Peninsula. Many thanks, Kathy
