Deep Shade

The hydrangeas in Laguna thrive on neglect. They never get anything other than a good mulching from the dropped avocado and liquidambar leaves and weekly watering. Because they are in the deep shade they don't really require as much water as you might think. The liquidambar trees above them are deciduous so they do get some sunshine during the winter when they are forming their buds. They are some of my favorite shrubs!
