CAN SUMMER CRUSH BE PLANTED IN FULL SUN (10AM-4PM) IN NORTH CAROLINA?
In warmer zones such as North Carolina, I would avoid the hot afternoon sun for a Summer Crush Hydrangea. The plants’ leaves and huge flowers will require quite a bit of water to keep them healthy in that setting. Morning sun would be best. If you still want to try a hydrangea in that spot, look at BloomStruck too. We’ve found it has great heat tolerance than most mophead hydrangeas.
