The Q&A Archives: Hydrangea planting sites

Question: Where should I plant hydrangea in my area (northwest Georgia). Full sun, shade or partial sun/shade? Also, when is the best time to plant?

Answer: Hydrangeas prefer growing in a partially shady site. Find a spot in your garden that gets morning sun but afternoon shade and your hydrangea will thrive. Spring is the best time to plant. Plant now and your new hydrangea will have time to become established before summer sets in. It should flower for you this summer if planted now.
