Accordingly, what is the best hydrangea for shade?
Hydrangeas for Sun While most hydrangeas do best in shade, varieties of Hydrangea paniculata prefer sunny spots. Most selections have large clusters of white flowers in summer. The showy blooms fade to shades of pink or red before drying to beige.
Furthermore, can Endless Summer hydrangeas grow in full shade? Endless Summer® hydrangeas prefer morning sun and afternoon dappled shade. If they are planted in full sun, it may be too hot and intense for the blooms to produce. If you pruned your hydrangeas back to the base, it will take some time for the new growth to develop and produce blooms.
Thereof, how many hours of sunlight do hydrangeas need?
The further north your garden is located, the more sunlight your hydrangeas need. An average rule of thumb is six hours of sunlight per day. However, hydrangeas growing in the south can perform on only three hours of sunlight.
