HYDRANGEA QUESTION

Postby Vendella01 » Jul 08, 2012 9:28 pm

I have several types of Hydrangea, Can never remember the names, they are all blooming except one, lots of leaves, similar leaf to peegee, no flowers, my daughter says she has the same problem, planted one years ago, lots of growth and leafs no flowers. The leaf is very thick,strong stems, no flowers.
Any ideas?? They seem to be in the right light locations. Im stumped. :?

I just have the one type of hydrangea blooming at the moment - Annabelle.

The others I have, Pee Gee, Endless Summer, and one whose name I can't remember, are fully leafed out but not blooming yet. but they do have buds!

Are you giving them a fertilizer with a high first number? That would encourage lots of green growth.

A fertilizer with a higher middle number is usually used for those shrubs that bloom.
