From Question and Answer Forums: What are others saying about this plant?
Cincinnati I have an area on my south facing front lawn that is partly shaded by a neighbors oak tree to the west. I want to plant a cluster of deciduous shrubs that may grow to 4 or 5. Is Hydrangea a good option I have a few potted hydrangeas that have performed well in full sun on the other side of my house.
Lisa,I think it would be a good choice. Try Pee Wee Oakleaf Hydrangea. It stays around 3 to 4 feet. Ammon Nursery carries this plant in Burlington Ky.Steve
