Peegee Hydrangea

I live in MA and bought a Peegee hydrangea this spring. I planted it, taking the right precautions (planted in the right depth, loosened the roots, didn’t compact the soil when putting it in w/the flowers). It looked great for about two weeks. It did get a bit cold but was doing okay after that. However, it recently (within the last two days) has completely wilted. I tried watering but did not want to overwater the flower. I pruned back a few of the dead flowers and leaves but that did not do anything either. Did I plant it too early? And if so, will it revive itself in the summer?

It may have been planted a bit too early, but through no fault of your own. It went from greenhouse conditions to real world conditions, and this can be hard on a plant. As long as the stems are alive, it will be fine.

‘Leggy’ Hydrangea

I have a 3 year old PeeGee Hydrangea that has gotten very leggy with ‘skinny’ stems. I live in Ontario on eastern shore of Lake Huron. Is there anything I can do to make it bushier and fuller?

Pruning can sometimes help with rejuvenating plants so they are more shapely in appearance. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/hydrangea/prune-hydrangea-bushes-hydrangea-pruning-instructions.htm

Pee Gee Hydrangeas

I purchased single stemmed (tree) pee gee hydrangeas. I’m hoping to grow them as multi-stemmed shrubs in my yard. Is it possible? Will they start to develop branches from the trunk on their own?

They can develop suckers on the trunk but they will not shape themselves into a shrub shape. They most likely are grafted onto a plant stock specifically for this standard shape.
