Oak Leaf Hydrangea Leaves Are Turning Red And Droopy

Question From: N. Hyder - TENNESSEE
Q: I have an oak leaf hydrangea that is a cutting from my grandmothers plant. IT is about 12 inches tall at this point. The leaves are turning red and are droopy.

A: Not knowing the conditions under which it's growing I can't advise you. Leaves wilt from lack of water or too much water. Leaves color from stress. Take photos and a soil sample to an independent garden center or nursery that sells these plants for advice. The horticulture agent at your county extension should also be helpful. Good Luck Nancy
