HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - The super cold winter we had is impacting some varieties of Hydrangea flowers.  That doesn't mean you will have to do without them this year, though.

The French Hydrangea, which has bright blue or pink blooms, may not get new blooms this year due to the cold weather we had.

But other Hydrangeas should have proficient blooms, including the 'Annabelle' type, or the 'Oak Leaf', which is native to our area.

Jeff Bennett of Bennett Nurseries suggests you consider a mix of Hydrangeas for your garden in case we have another cold winter next year. This way, you'll still have some blooms from the types that are hardier.
