Shooting Star Hydrangea

indoor hydrangea care

I have a Shooting Star hydrangea that I brought in for the winter. The room has indirect light and is cool. The leaves are turning yellow. Is this normal and will it survive the winter? Thank you.

The leaves are turning yellow due to the fact that it is trying to go into dormancy. Hydrangea really need to go into dormancy for a few months to be healthy. Do you have an attached garage or basement - basically somewhere relatively cool and dark - you can place it in for a few months to do that? Once there, it will lose all its leaves. Water it once or twice a month and bring it back out in the spring.
