wewawo, me too. I don't get any blooms on mine. Have only lived here two years, but one thing I know, the plant isn't in full sun.

Most of my hydrangeas want to be out of the afternoon sun. I have 3 sun loving ones that I'm anxious to plant where I now have a Pom Pom which hates the afternoon sun and looks like it's on its last legs every afternoon once it gets hot. As soon as the sun begins to fade it perks back up. Gardner picked out the hydrangea and planted it in its spot. Needless to say they are no longer our gardeners.

growing up my Mom had 2 Hydrangeas side by side in our backyard that got full sun and it was always a prolific bloomer. I have 4 Hydrangeas, one of them a lace cap. In 2016 they didn't bloom at all. I found out that just about everyone in our county in Eastern PA were saying their Hydrangeas didn't bloom. In 2017 they bloomed. Now as of July 9th, only the lace cap is blooming in the front of my house, Northern side. The 2 on the Eastern side more shade aren't blooming yet. The other one in my backyard full sun I only see a hidden budded bloom so far. Strange because since I have had them the past 15 year before 2016, they always were in full bloom in the Summer months.
