I was given a hydranga approx. 7 years ago. I planted it outside (Kansas - semi-shade area). I then waited to see the wonderful blooms it would produce the next year - NO! Not that year or for 6 years to come. I vowed to give it one more year and if it did not bloom - CHOP! I believe it heard me, as that summer it had one nice bloom on it. Guess it thought that would be enough as it did not bloom this summer. Foilege (SP?) is beautiful - no bloom. One person told me that if it came from a florist (which it did) they will never bloom again (which it did once). Is this true? Sally in KS

Here's the only reason I could find as to why a florist hydrangea wouldn't bloom again (in certain planting zones).

Thank you Cindy! I bet that is the reason, as mine dies down each winter, and returns in full green glory in the spring (Kansas). I wonder if one could bring the plant inside with any luck? Oh well, guess I will just have to enjoy the beautiful bush it makes each summer, and hope to see a bloom now and then. Thanks again! Sal
