    Yes, they look like the flower spikes. They fall off, but takes time, they can be cut out.

      Thanks! That's what I wanted to hear! They look so bad. There's a bit of this stuff in my hydrangeas, too. Can I cut them out?

    Yes, they are the dead, dried stalks from last year's growth. I twist them and they come out clean as a whistle!

    You can cut back the old dead stalks and new growth will come.

    She is right you can, but I have a problem with cats laying in my and smashing them so I leave a few to make it less comfortable for the cats. The plant will grow up and cover them quickly.

    Hydrangeas usually have dead limbs that can be cut much lower, removing that whole limb ground level. I would wait until you can see the leaf buds, and just trim the deadheads down some to where the leaf buds are starting to bud. Otherwise you might not have any blooms this year.
    The dead ones will not leaf out.
