I showed my gardening friends pics of our sons hydrangeas in his front
yard and they flipped ...said they never saw hydrangeas so big and beautiful.
So, I’ll show you guys as well...this was from memorial day.
They are about 8 (or more) foot tall...The one on the right ( only got a bit
of it in the photo) is at least 9 foot tall.

Re: Hydrangea
They appear to be planted in an area where they would get lots of sun. I thought hydrangeas needed to be planted in a shady/partially shaded area.

Are there varieties that tolerate more sun than others?

Re: Hydrangea
Donno, we never had luck with them.

Re: Hydrangea
Those are very nice indeed!

@DIYJeff , I think hydrangeas will take more sun in a coastal area, or where it's cooler, and I think Long Island fills the bill. We could grow very nice ones in Cleveland, too. And some kinds will take a lot more sun than others. We have some splendid specimens out here as well. I recall reading that there's on the order of about 600 varieties of them.

@Two Knots , very nice Japanese maple, too. People used to practically cry when I had to tell them they wouldn't do well in Riverside County. Those smaller orange plants look a lot like azeleas.

Re: Hydrangea
The leafs are a lot smaller than the hydrangeas I have seen. What is the variety.... and are they deciduous ?
