I planted 3 hydrangea plants in my front yard last year. They are doing great. I would like to plant a few in my backyard but the area I plan to put them only gets about 3-4 hours of sun. Is this enough?

Actually, 3-4 hours of morning sun is perfect for hydrangeas. They tend to wilt in afternoon sunshine, but you need some sun for good flowering. I'd go ahead and plant them in the backyard. Enjoy!
