New to the forum so forgive me if this had been addressed.
Also new to Hydrangeas. Just bought a house last winter (zone 6, winters can be bitter). The house belonged to an elderly couple, so there hadn't been any upkeep in the yard for a while.
There was a mass of dead looking brown sticks that I soon found out was a hydrangea. This summer is filled out beatifully and bloomed (sparingly)My question is:
Do they look dead every winter? Or had this one been neglected?
I'm trying to plan landscaping for the front of the house and would love to put some hydrangeas there but I'm not sure how to hide the "dead stick" look (if indeed they do look like that).
Thanks for any help!
