Oak Leaf Hydrangea Has Not Leafed Out By June

Question From: M. Harper - Madison, Mississippi, United States
Q: My oak leaf hydrangea has not leafed out yet. It is June 7. It is trying. I see buds and one small leaf. What to do? What is wrong?

A: It should have leafed out by now. In Michigan ours are leafed out and producing flower buds. I can't tell you what the issue is. Maybe lack of water? A late season frost. Be sure to keep it watered and hope for the best. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
