|Is there a hydrangea that will grow in Utah? I heard of a "Peegee Hydrangea" that is rated for a zone 4a. We are a 5. Thank you. I lived in North Carolina for a while and now would love to have a Hydrangea again.|
|Hydrangea paniculata 'Grandiflora', also known as Peegee hydrangea, is hardy to about zone 4. In order to make it happy in Utah, you should give it a growing bed rich in organic matter. Mix a few inches of compost into the soil to build up the organic matter content. You may also need to add a pound of powdered sulfur per 100 square feet if the pH is above about 7.5. It would prefer a shady location. Some morning sun is alright.
Good luck with your hydrangea!
