Will my hydrangea bloom with a couple hours of afternoon filtered sun? I am in zone 6.


Great question! It depends on what kind of hydrangea you have, but typically both Endless Summer® hydrangeas and panicle hydrangeas will bloom in afternoon sun. If it’s only a couple of hours, then you may not get as many flowers as if they were planted in areas that get 4-6 hours of morning sun. One thing to watch out for in zone 6 is that afternoon sun can get pretty hot, which may cause them to develop leaf scorch later in the summer. Also, be sure to take a look at our planting and care guide or at the hydrangea selection available through First Editions®.
