Hydrangeas will grow outdoors in your gardening zone. They prefer to grow in full sun but will adapt to growing in part afternoon shade. Hydrangeas need a fast-draining, organically rich soil. Amend the planting bed before planting your hydrangea by spreading a 3-4" layer of organic material (compost, peat moss, etc.) over the top of the soil and digging it in to a depth of 6-8". Plant your hydrangea and then water it in well. Water your shrub once each week and it should bloom and grow without problem. Enjoy!
