I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
To plant a tree or bush dig down only as deep as the plant's root ball in the container but about 2-3 times that wide.
I would not plant hydrangea there. Contact your local El Paso County Extension Office at the following address or phone for free information on locally adapted plants.

You can plant now but you'll need to be extra careful to keep their root systems moist in the heat so they can survive.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
