Will the new Endless Summer Hydrangea survive in Phoenix if I move it inside for the worst of the summer?

Hydrangeas are not particularly happy in Phoenix, although some nurseries sell them. If you have your heart set on growing Endless Summer, find a site with early morning sun and protection from summer sun from 10 a.m. on. As long as the hydrangea gets a few hours of morning sun, it should grow well and bloom for you. I wouldn't try to move it in and out - simply find a mostly shady site and remember to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet. Best wishes with your new hydrangea!
