Hydrangeas Are Covered in Dying Leaves
I have three hydrangea plants that have done very well in the past few years. Several weeks ago, I cut off the dead flowers. Today, I went to check on them and am horrified to find that the end leaves are all brown and curled up. The leaves near the bottom of the plants are fine, but there are no buds and some large stems are almost all covered with dead and dying leaves. What is causing this and what can I do?

The plants may have gotten too dry. Hydrangeas need to be kept unifomly moist. Try increasing the water.
