My climbing hydrangea has developed brown, wrinkled areas on some of its leaves. This is the first time in the 4 years since I planted it that I have noticed this problem. Although it had flowers when i purchased it, it has never bloomed in subsequent seasons.

Send us digital photos of the affected leaves so we can see what you may be dealing with. Climbing hydrangeas are noted for starting slowly but once its roots are established it grows rapidly. Plants do well in full sun or light shade in moist slightly acid soil, rich in organic matter. Mulch annually with compost.
