Why does my hydrangea not bloom?

The old fashion French Hydrangeas which can either be blue or pink, form flower buds on previous year’s growth.  Therefore, doing any severe trimming in winter or spring and removing this wood also removes flower buds.  Hydrangeas also have a tendency to start leafing out early when we have some warm days and are subject to dieback during late freezes which can also kill the wood where the flower buds will be formed.  In our area, the best French Hydrangea type is the new Endless Summer Hydrangea which will bloom on old and new growth.
