They can bloom while this young but the flowers wont be very large. The older it gets the better the blooms. Xo

2nd season in zone 5b. No blooms yet. Some brown dots on otherwise healthy looking leaves. Should I worry? Seeking #plantadvice #hydrangea-help

It looks good. They are an acidic loving plant. Water the base and heat of summer they do seem to need more water in certain zones(hotter areas) heres a #link of #growingandcareofhydrangea https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/hydrangea/growing-hydrangeas-hydrangea-care-guide.htm

My baby hydrangea is struggling to survive in the hot location where I planted her 😕 but she continues to produce new blooms for me! I put a beach umbrella over her to protect her from the hot Chicago sun... My neighbors must think I am cuckoo. 😁

@Bebigirl your hydrangea will continue to struggle in the sun and maybe sucome to it eventually, it may get so stressed it willsay tata!! On the other hand it may adapt and spit in everyones eye!! I would watch it closely and if it seems like its not going to adapt I would move it to more shade💘😍

Thanks @ShelleySnyder . I don't have anyplace to move them :( I wish I would have done research on hydrangeas first... And bought a variety that likes sun.

Thank you, @Acetaker! I will. Also, there are a lot of mint growing around my little hydrangeas... Will the mint hurt them or prevent them from growing?

comment
Acetaker

Maria,they shouldn't hurt them. But,if they r both close to the ground I'd leave space for air flow😊

Bebigirl

Ok thanks, @Acetaker. I am finding mint is hard to contain. The previous owner had it growing everywhere. I pulled a ton out but the mint is a tenacious plant!! 😕
