I have a variegated hydrangea that had small white flowers when purchased 10 years ago. It is near our endless summer hydrangea which blooms beautifully every year. We are in SE North Carolina. The variegated one doesn’t get as much sunlight but the leaves are beautiful, although extremely overgrown. I’ve contemplated cutting it all the way back because there has been minimal pruning. HELP!

Generally variegated plants need more sun so it may be a shortage of sunlight that is preventing flowering.  How and when you prune can also prevent flowering.  There are a couple of pruning methods for hydrangeas depending on what type it is.  Here’s a link that will help you determine what type it is and the pruning method required:  https://www.finegardening.com/article/pruning-hydrangeas
