(Cape Cod, MA, USA - Zone 7a) on May 22, 2012 12:13 PM concerning plant:
My favorite Blue Hydrangea, and a signature plant of my home, Cape Cod. They can be seen everywhere on that small peninsula, blooming all summer until frost. They thrive there best with ample moisture and full sun.
However full sun in New England does not compare to full sun in the South, so this plant likes partial shade in the South, unless an irrigation system provides them with daily watering.
