Hi…..sorry to see thar no one has replied to your question. I live in Northern Wisconsin and have a HUGE White Hydrangea. It was just beautiful this summer. Some of the heads were as big as plates! My bush started dying about a month or so ago. It got cold here at night and a few frosty nights too so I think that’s what did it in. Last year was much warmer. Most of the heads are brown now. I have a question regarding pruning it back. Do I do this now or wait until Spring? It is growing up against the hoouse and out into the alley way on the side of the house. It stands over 6.5 feet. I have looked on a few different web site, but they but they say different thigs about when to prune them. I don’t want to kill it. The lady we bought the house from use to live here when she was growing up and she figures the bush is at least 35 years old!!! Maureen
