Hydrangea planted in full shade will produce far fewer flowers than those in partial shade.

Water Requirements:
Hydrangea absorb water quickly, keep the soil evenly moist and well drained. Though this can take watering your plants possibly more than once per day.

Frost Resistance:
Its frost tender more serious frost damage turns the leaves and emerging buds dark brown.

Feeding:
Combination of sulphur, compost and peat moss has proved to be a successful hydrangea fertiliser.
