Knowing if your Hydrangea Blooms on old or new wood will help you make timely cuts.

Not all of these shrubs should be pruned at the same time. Those that bloom on old growth should only be pruned after flowering. Others bloom on new growth and should be pruned before they wake up in spring or as they are going dormant in fall.

Endless Summer Hydrangeas and variations are Hydrangeas that bloom both on the previous year's branches as well as the new season's growth.

Deadheading Hydrangeas
Removing old blooms on a plant is called "Deadheading." Fortunately, we can remove the old blooms at any time of the year without harming the bloom for the following year. In June and July you may remove them in any way you would like (long stems or short stems). Here are some tips for deadheading:

(1) When you cut blooms for arrangements in June or July, you can cut them with long stems because the bloom buds haven't set for the following year.

(2) When you cut the blooms after the first of August, it would be safest to remove them with very short stems so you won't disturb any developing bloom buds for next year. As long as you cut above the first set of large leaves, the blooms will be fine.
