Hydrangea Tree Not Blooming?

I have a hydrangea tree that has had lots of white flowers on it for two years. This year it has lots more leaves, but so far no flowers (or buds). Could it be because of our frequent rainy weather? I live in the southern tier of New York State.

It may need to be pruned. Get some good pruning shears and see if it can relieve stress off the plant so it can get a chance to rebloom.

Prune the dead wood away. Prune any time except the early spring.

Hello, I just bought a Hydrangea Tree, and the garden center employee said to let it grow during the summer and fall. Don't prune until early spring. I live in Ont. Canada.

These can be very beautiful when blooming and generally even older blooms do not look 'ugly'.

There is a lot to know about the Hydrangea trees/bushes but knowing what type of Hydrangea you have is the first step.


This may be your type?
Grandiflora, known among gardeners as Pee Gee Hydrangea, is your best bet for growing a hydrangea tree.

Hopefully you already have this information but if not, read some of the information sites and see if you can determine your plant's type/name.
Each link has good points.

It seems you must be in the correct USDA zone for growing Hydrangea as zones 1-8 are usually recommended so perhaps you have just not been pruning your tree each year.

Another factor of course is the pH of the soil.
I have a tester that I have used for years and it is really helpful with Hydrangeas. These testers are sold at most large stores and all garden center stores so maybe you might want to check one out sometime. They are sold on line also.

Just in case someone is interested in finding out what USDA zone they live:
