In this sense, you should know that The hydrangea only tolerates direct sun in climates like the Cantabrian communities.. In warmer areas, you can put it outside, but always find a shaded area if you want to avoid burning. In addition, you should know that at very high temperatures, hydrangea stops having that wonderful flowering that we love so much.
Before summer comes, hydrangeas should be transplanted so that they can not receive the direct sun. Ideally, they should receive morning sun and enjoy afternoon shade.
If you have your hydrangeas in pots, you can do it on terraces and porches. Always in the shade in hot climates. In spring and autumn, when the radiation is not too strong, you can put it in the sun. But when the heat starts getting worse, it is better to avoid direct sunlight. Ideally, they should receive the sun in the morning, and be in the shade at noon and in the afternoon.
