    Hydrangeas do not do as well in full or afternoon sun. So choose a spot with some shade or morning sun.

    In the shade with dapple sunlight. It doesn't do well in direct sunlight.

    I'm on Long Island, NY and all of my hydrangeas get some sun BUT filtered shade --the tree Hydrangeas especially --and are loving where they are while blooming profusely. Full sun might be a bit too strong for them, so filtered sun (under or next to a tree or fence) would likely be best.

    In an area that holds moisture. Hydra means water and Hydrangeas do not do well in dry conditions. Semi shade is best. Avoid hot mid-day sun.

    hydrangea ideally should be planted in partial shade and will need water on a daily basis

    east side but especially under trees to protect from late spring frosts. I cage my others and use old quilts to protect

    Atay out of the bright sunshine. These beauties need a bit of shade. Make sure you cut it to the ground in the fall to get beautiful new green growth in the spring.

    i do not cut mine as I like the winter “bones”. Plus it depends on if you buy ones that grow on new or old wood.
