Enough sun?

Posted by jkcroom SE USA (My Page) on

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?

RE: Enough sun?

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.

RE: Enough sun?

Whoops...left out some main ingredients.
I live in south al and they are macrophyllias. Endless summer.

RE: Enough sun?

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.

Thank you all
