I planted my BloomStruck® Hydrangea where there is mostly shade all day. No morning sun and a short period of time with afternoon sun however the afternoon sun hits when it’s not at its hottest or highest. Will it be ok in this spot?

Thanks for your question! I’m concerned that under those conditions, although hopefully, the leaves may not scorch, the hydrangea may not receive sufficient light to bloom well. An ideal situation would be direct morning sun but shade in the afternoon. Review our planting and care guide for even more tips. Hydrangeas transplant well while they are dormant so hopefully, you can find a more favorable location this fall in order to really enjoy those blooms.
