Why is my hydrangea drooping?
When hydrangeas are drooping, they're often expressing their dislike of local conditions. Too much sun and not enough water lead to wilt; heavy flower loads can cause tender branches to bend until they touch the ground. Even an extra dose of fertilizer may contribute to droopy hydrangea plants.
How do I protect my hydrangeas from too much sun?
A temporary sunshade or sun cloth during the hottest part of the year provides protection from intense afternoon sunlight. Install two stakes slightly taller than the plants, and stretch a light-colored sheet between them.
Why are my hydrangea leaves curling up?
When there is an insufficient amount of water provided for the hydrangea plant, the leaves curl upwards. The main reason for the upward curling of leaves is to seek protection from sunburn exposure now that they don't have much water to emit. This then enables the plant to survive water deprivation for a bit longer.
