What is the best hydrangea for Albuquerque?
I would like to plant a hydrangea in a corner against my house that faces North and East. This area gets more and more direct sunlight hours as the summer progresses. In the early spring it gets almost no sun. In the hottest part of summer it gets about 4 hours of direct sunlight. I am hoping to find a hydrangea that can tolerate both full shade, full sun, and the heat of Albuquerque (it gets up to 100 during the hottest part of summer). I know that this is a lot to ask for from any plant. I would love to plant a lacecap hydrangea here, preferably blue. Is this a bad idea? If so, what long blooming flowering shrub would perform well in this area?
