Hi,

Diseases that might cause your leaves to run black are alternaria, or Bacterial wilt of bacterial spot. Here's a good publication about diseases of hydrangea.


It might be wise to give me a call 828 349 2049 or email me at clbreden@ncsu.edu so we can talk further in an attempt to determine the exact disease that you have.

Warmly,
Christy
