Hydrangea Plants

I Grow Hydrangeas and Have Always Had Great Success

Blackbear added on August 22, 2012 | Answered

The hydrangea bush I planted in spring has started turning black everywhere. The flowers also turned black and fell off. This was from a nursery and a 1 and 1/2 foot bush just beautiful. I don't know what else I can do for it. I have always had good luck with these bushes.
