What type of hydrangeas are these: classic beauty? lA Dreaming? Forever? Macro phyla?? Is it getting part sun/part shade? Are you adding anything to the soil to bring about the different colors? I'm not seeing any answers to these questions. Sorry, am a new by. Thanks, Marie

After some research I found out this is hydragneas macrophylla(sp) Many companies have their own brand names of this version. It does best in morning sun and afternoon shade. Colors can be changed by amending soil. Leave dried flowers on for winter interest and trim in March being careful not to cut any new buds. If anyone has any other tips, I would love to hear from you. Thx

at first glance I thought the yellow-green ones were the limelight hydrangeas. I love these flowers. I have looked at some info on growing them in my region and that may have to do with why some ya'll aren't able to grow them easily (or at all). Look at the temperature ranges, whether or not you're getting a fair amount of part shade and sun (avoid harsh sun, as that will definitely wilt and kill your plants not meant to be in that type environment). I have never grown anything myself but I hope this helps since op didn't reply to questions here.

Hello Everyone, I just joined and love the hydrangea garden and would like to plant some but I see no helpful answers by the creator of this garden as far as help. Does she answer questions or is she not obligated to? Just an inquiring mind before I get too far into this site. Thank you
