Hydrengea-Which Spot?

Posted by mainegard3 4/5 (My Page) on

I have room for 4 hydrengeas.

Spot1: Full sun with 8 feet spread
Spot2: Morning Sun with maybe 5 feet spread.
Spot3: Morning Sun with maybe 8 feet spread.
Spot4: Dappled morning sun with a lot of room.

Would prefer nice foliage in fall too.

Note: New Pinky Winky from home depot, tops chewed off by deer. Have since purchased liquid fence. Not sure if I should return in for a new one under the warranty.

Hydrengeas in the running:
Lady in Red
Twist and Shout
Pinky Winky
Quick Fire
Pee Gee
Oak Leaf

What would do best in the spots listed above!!
I don't have room for all so help me decide please.

Others to consider but more concerned with the hydrengeas.
Witch Hazel
Smoke Bush

On a side note, is it true Lady in Red will not bloom in zone 4/5?

RE: Hydrengea-Which Spot?

Spot1: Pinky Winky or Quickfire
Spot2: T&S or Annabelle (LIR if hardy)
Spot3: Pinky Winky or Quickfire (Oakleaf if hardy)
Spot4: T&S or Annabelle (LIR or Oakleaf if hardy)

I hesitate on Lady in Red and Oakleaf in Zone 4/5. Oakleaf does make a nice foliage plant even if it never blooms. I left out PeeGee becuase I don't like it. Much better selections on the market.
