Slim hydrangea

I'm just getting interested in hydrangeas and realize that most grow as wide as tall. This would be wonderful if I could use them along a tree line like I was planning until I found out that deer really love them and I have major problems with deer in my daylilies. I came up with another plan to use a couple of hydranges in with other plants as a foundation planting but I really need them to be slimmer than tall. Maybe 5-7 feet and no more than 4 feet wide. I have looked at lots of hydrangea growers online and get more confused everytime I look. Can any of you hydrangea collectors help me. I'm not too particular about other characterics other than they need to be in partial shade.

I really hope you can help.

Have you checked some of the serratas? Not as tall as you want but usually no wider than 4' at 10 years of age. For example, Beni Gaku grows about 4' tall by 3' wide.

Thanks, luis pr. I'll go look at the serratas.
