Too much shade for F&E Together?
My search for a blue hydrangea has led me to the Forever and Ever series--specifically Together. I now am toying with a new plan for two short bluish hydrangea on the east side of my house. Together seems perfect and I've looked up almost every posting on this forum that discusses Together. However, one thing I can't get a handle on is how much shade can it tolerate? Does it need a certain minimum amount of sunshine? If so, how little can it get by on?
As you probably guessed, the east side of my house has lots of shade. The two Togethers would get some early morning sunlight and some passing sunlight around noontime. Most of the morning they would be in the high shade of a couple oak trees; most of the afternoon they would be in the shadow of the house. Could Together get by on that limited amount of sunlight?
If not, do you know some other short hydrangea that blooms on new wood, likes shade, and preferably (but not necessarily) is bluish?
