Hydrangeas for summer colour. A garden without a hydrangea in flower in summer doesn’t have the impact that it could. The flowers last for many weeks and they love shade.
As long as your soil isn’t bone dry you can grow an Hydrangea in your garden. If your shade is caused by large trees that suck the moisture out of your soil try growing them in pots for a few years. Remember to water them regularly and they with shine in a shady corner.
White Hydrangeas for summer colour are such a useful addition for any garden. White is the most neglected flower colour in the garden but possibly the most important. Adding any white flowering plants to a garden lifts all the other colours.
