This is my first year with this Hydrangea and while it made a good start, it hasn't bloomed and seems to be a little flimsy where the new growth is. I think it may need more sun, it's getting morning sun and indirect light all day now, but the new branches seem to be stretching towards the sunny side and they seem to not be holding their own weight, of just foliage. I don't think over fertilization has been an issue, fertilized twice, once when planted, once a month later. any one have this variety or have any tips for tree hydrangeas?

This site says it wants full sun: http://www.baileynurseries.com/news/first-editions-tickled-pink-hydrangea/

See! You were right.

Hmmm... This is the first I've seen it say "full" sun. What do ya think? I don't think this ones as likely to flop in midday heat and sun as my endless summer, which wilts at the mention of sun, but I'm not certain i want to go "full" sun either. Hmmm... Trying to think of good full-er sun spots in my yard for a little protection, within reach of the hose... Lol

The paniculatas are one of the more sun tolerant species, so in your area I expect they'd do OK in full sun.

I think I have just the spot! I would really love to see this do well, the photos I've seen are all pretty, but stock photos. I was hoping to see for myself. Maybe next year. :(

Poor little thing looked floppy before, worse after transplant, but i gave him extra love and really good dirt plus bone meal and peat moss...and a hair cut! Lol i couldn't resist. It wasn't a shapely plant to start but once all the branches got to stretching west it was a sight. So i may get no blooms next year either now but at least I'm not looking at a sad sack of sticks.

Just for future reference, all the paniculatas can take full sun in our area. They bloom on new wood, so you should have no problem next year with bloom.
