How do you prune broad leaf hydrangeas in the winter? They are in a pot and I brought them into my garage from the outside before frost. Do I cut them back? They are still slightly green.

If you are not sure which these are, it may be best to wait until spring to prune stems and only remove the leaves for the winter clean up.
