Only one bloom this past summer! We had a frost so the leggy stalks and leaves are wilted. Adjacent oak leaf and climbing hydrangeas bloomed beautifully...

This particular hydrangea is one of the macrophylla species. These will flower on old wood, so this can be a chore to keep it alive to flower. This article will explain a little more in detail: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/hydrangea/hydrangea-not-blooming.htm
