Is there such a thing as a hydrangea evergreen hedge to plant in upstate New York?

Unfortunately, I am not aware of any hydrangeas that would be evergreen in a cold winter area like upstate New York. The leatherleaf viburnum (Viburnum rhytipophyllum) might be suitable depending on your microclimate and it will usually remain evergreen. According to Michael Dirr's "Manual of Woody Landscape Plants" the foliage is not usually injured until the temperature reaches 10 degrees below zero F. The flowers might remind one of a white-flowered hydrangea and the large, dense foliage is of a somewhat similar textural effect to hydrangea.
