Little Lime Hydrangea

Asked August 30, 2017, 12:13 PM EDT

Hi, I have a row of Little Lime Hydrangeas, and some are presenting weird holes on their leaves, like a bug would be eating it. What's this? Thank you Adriana

You have been visited by the dreaded Japanese Beetles. They were extremely numerous this year. This is the end of their cycle so if you don't see any on your hydrangea, they have eaten and left. Your plants will be just fine. Here is information on this beetle: http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/insects/find/japanese-beetles/
