    Is this from over watering? I can't think of what else I might be doing wrong. The conditions are that we're in Florida, it's extremely hot, this hydrangea was just planted last spring, we've been getting a ton of rain. It's only happening on one side of the plant- the side that does not face the house, which is the south side. Not sure if that info means anything. Otherwise, it's taken very well and I haven't had any problems.

    Looks like leaf burn from water standing on the leaves in the sun. The reflection of light from your siding and sheltered from air flow might make the sun stronger on that side

    I agree. Looks like someone watered the leaves in full sunlight. Always water below if you see the plant drooping, or wait til the sun drops down if you can only water fromthe top.

    I have the exact same condition on mine and have to plead guilty to watering during sunny times. I'm going to cut mine way back and transplant it so when it recovers, I won't make that mistake again. :confused:
