I have two hydrangeas,but I transplanted one to the front yard as an experiment this year. We got them last year when we moved into our new home. Both did struggle through the summer and then I cut them down to about 6" each. They both returned in February with bright green leaves! Research has been telling me they love morning sun and then afternoon shade. Hence, the reason for mving one to the front. If all goes well with both locations then great. If the one still in my back yard struggles again, it will be transplanted up to the side or front as well.
