Enough sun?

jkcroom(SE USA)July 9, 2012

I am moving and planting several hydrangeas to a new location and was concerned about enough sun. The new place has dappled sun from 10 until 11:30. Then afternoon rays from 3:30-5:00. Is that enough for bloom power?

You do not specify where exactly you are or what kind of hydrangeas you refer to so this is like shooting in the dark, but I'll bite.

Should work. 90 minutes of direct sun shouldn't be enough to fry them. Just make sure the morning shade isn't too deep, which would retard bloomage.
