Miss Belgium - where to plant?
I live in a Mediterranean climate in No Cal, wet cool winters and long dry hot summers. I just ordered a hydrangea macrophylla Miss Belgium from a local specialist nursery. They say to plant it in "full shade". The Heronswood web site says to plant it in "full sun"! These instructions are so diametrically opposite, I am confused, and now don't know what to do. My available locations for this hydrangea are: in the ground in full shade (under trees next to a rhododendron), or in a half wine barrel in partial shade under a eugenia tree. Do any of you have experience growing this hydrangea? Any help would be very appreciated, as the nurseries seem to be in absolute disagreement on where to plant this.
Thanks very much - Jackie
