Is it okay to cut hydrangea flowers?

If it blooms on old wood (stems from the summer before the current one), its buds are being formed, and if you wait too late you may cut them off, meaning no flowers next spring. So these shrubs should be pruned immediately after their flowers fade. They bloom in early summer on old wood, so prune them after flowering.
