I live in Northern Nevada, bought and planted my hydrangea (blooms are periwinkle blue) in a very large pot on my patio. It gets afternoon sun beginning at about 4:30. I noticed the leaves wilting so I shifted the location a bit and increased the amount of water. Now the edges of the leaves are drying and I see very little new growth. What should I do? The blooms are healthy, but, overall the plant looks kind of puny.

Caring for Hydrangeas

I'm new to the forum, and have some problems with my Hydrangea leaves getting dry around the edges.

To Thumbsup in Northern Nevada about your Hydrangeas: They prefer shade and morning sun only. They will wilt after sun exposure, but will pop back after cooling down in afternoon shade. Morning sun only, evening shade.

I live in Zone 5-Spokane, WA. I have 6 different hydranga's and they all get late afternoon sun and they are HUGH. You never know--I was willing to try and transplant if needed. As long as I keep cutting, they all kept producing.
