Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, Georgia does not appear to staff its Ask an Expert panel, so no one is available to answer it for your area. Here is a general article on witches broom: https://hortnews.extension.iastate.edu/2005/2-23-2005/witchesbroom.html

However, in order to know what the cause is in your hydrangea, you need more localized advice, and I suggest you contact your county Extension office: https://extension.uga.edu/county-offices/cherokee.html

Good luck!
