Hydrangea shade/sun tolerance
I know that hydrangeas prefer morning sun and afternoon shade. However, I have very little space in my yard that has these conditions. I have a lot of deep shade areas and some areas that receive 2-3 hrs of hot,early afternoon sun. Researching the internet has produced conflicting info on the sun/shade tolerance of various cultivars. I currently have rooted cuttings of nikko blue, endless summer, lady in red, native oakleaf, an unkown blue lacecap and a varigeated lacecap. Can anyone give me some advice on, or ranking of, the sun/shade tolerance of these varieties? If it was your yard, which would you place in the deepest shade and which would get the most sun? Thank you!
