Hydrangea Blooms Turn Brown

Rta123 added on August 3, 2015 | Answered

I planted a hydrangea about two months ago and the leaves and new growth appear healthy but the old blooms have turned light pink with a lot of browning. Can I prune the rotting blooms? What is causing them to turn brown and how do I avoid this?
