In love with hydrangea plum passsion
Hi all, I saw a beautiful Aspera Hydrangea (plum passion) that I almost bought, but at the last minute noticed it said part shade to full shade. It is a large plant that I hate to put in if the location will not work. The spot is somewhat shady till 10AM and then has full sun till 3:30PM and full shade at 4PM. I live in the NW (Oregon) and it has been a hot summer. Is that too much afternoon sun and are there other hydrangeas to consider.
Right now there are 4 rhododendrons on the right side of the yard along the side fence. Then there is another rhodo on the left side of where I want to put the Plum Passion hydrangea. This is a picture of the area that I want to put in two large hydrangeas. Maybe different varieties.
I wanted one hydrangea between the little tree and the rhodo on the left (shade at 4PM). The other hydrangea I would locate between the little tree and the 4 rhodos on the right. (Sunny till 5PM). The empty area is about 25 feet by 10 feet deep with 2 trimmed up Junipers on the right and a Leland Cypress on the left.
The blue umbrella is trying to shade a plant that needs more shade till I can move it!
