I love hydrangeas and wish I could grow more of them. I have five pink ones; two are doing well, but the three in the back just aren't performing like they should. It's because they are under an oak tree (what isn't in my garden?) and get too much competition and shade. But this white one I found on my way to work looks happy, doesn't it? It's growing in a raised planter in front of some shops. It gets morning sun and total shade the rest of the day. My grandmother had a huge hydrangea that had the same exposure and it always did beautifully. She was quite a gardener; I think that's where I got my love of flowers. Thanks, Granny.
