Severe frosts will not be fatal it may damage the buds this will almost certainly result in smaller flowers, whilst this isnt relevant to plants that are going to live in the south it may be advisable to wrap in a winter fleece in the colder parts of the Uk.
Evergreen: No Deciduous
Pruning: Cut your Hydrangea back to a strong pair of buds in early spring after the frosts have cleared, can be cut earlier if you have planted in a pot and can bring it inside to escape the worse of the winter weather.
When should I prune back my Hydrangea:
We suggest waiting until Febrary/March when the frosts have gone. The dead flower heads will protect the plant over the winter months. When the frosts have finished cut it back by approximately a quarter and remove any weak or frost damaged shoots to the healthy wood.
