Q.Hydrangeas Died After 2 Days Planted

Zone Zone 5 | Erica.speare added on May 13, 2020 | Answered

just planted my hydrangeas in zone 5 and they have turned brown in 2 days. They get partial sun. Because it’s so new and still “early spring” should I cut them back over a leaf bud or just wait until next year? Thanks Erica
