by endless summer hydrangea plant has been in the ground for about 3 years and it has barely grown. every winter so far i think it is dead but it comes back in the spring with green shoots, but not significant growth… still looks like a baby, plus the blooms are 1 or 2 at the most and not something i can even cut to put in a vase.
it is south facing BUT it is in my clay-dense kinderhook, ny soil which may well be the culprit. if i recall in readings hydrangeas like sandy soil… makes sense then that they grow so profusely near beach areas.
any thoughts out there? thanks in advance.
