Hydrangea is a bit out of fashion now as, in a dry climate, it needs quite a bit of water. It's probably more sensible to grow hydrangeas in large pots. That way they can be moved into the shade as the sun starts to blaze although it needs some sun in spring to stimulate flowering. Plants can be watered more reliably in pots and they can be individually treated with bluing mixture if you want a mix of pink and blue flowers.
