Pruning guide for hydrangea

Dear Omar: I have “ever-blooming” hydrangeas in my front garden. I don't know how diverse it is as it was here when I bought my house a couple of years ago. It blooms in late May or early June and keeps its blooms forever. They are green and eventually turn brown, and if left alone they will maintain their brown flowers all winter, even through all the snow and wind that hits the front of our house. The first year, I painstakingly killed them before winter. The second year, I did nothing until the spring, when I killed them. What should I do? Part of me hates looking at the brown flowers all winter long and I would take my hedge trimmers and whiz them about halfway down and tame them. Obviously I don't want to damage them so they don't bloom the following year. I'm not familiar with the variety, and I'm not sure the right way to care for them. -Jesse
