    Design IdeasWith its charming lacecap and medium size, this Hydrangea is a perfect foundation plant for sheltered walls. It is an important element in shaded shrub borders and in the filtered sun at the edges of tree canopies. Ideal for hedges and understory plantings. With its dense, rounded form, it is also ideal for very large pots on shady terraces or patios, or beside a deck's steps to disguise the underpinnings.

    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
