Q.pruning hydrangeas

Zone White Pine, TN 37890 | Anonymous added on September 2, 2020 | Answered

We were told these are called strawberry hydrangeas because the white blooms turn a pretty light strawberry pink. The stems are long, woody and coming straight up out of the root. I have not removed the spent blooms since I am not familiar with hydrangeas and have in the past cut them back so much that they normally die. These do seem to be a more hardy shrub. I am at a loss at what to do. Help. Thank you.
