With all the cold and wet weather this past spring all the plants in the garden seemed to be having problems. We decided to check in with Kristin at Hydrangeas Plus to see what problems she noticed and how we can take better care of our hydrangeas.
First she showed us some of the varieties that are looking great right now. The varieties that she showed included Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Brestenburg’, Hydrangea serrata ‘Blue Billow’ and the truly unique Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Sol’.

These plants were a little slower to bloom due to the cooler weather, but they were worth the wait! Kristin then talked about the problems from the rainy weather. There is yellowing of the leaves of some varieties. There is also black spot and slugs. All of these can be treated and will not affect the long term health of your plants. If you have questions about the health of your plants or if you would like to add one of these wonderful plants to your landscape, give Hydrangeas Plus a call.
