I put in an Endless Summer hydrangea in my front door garden two years ago. It came through this winter quite well and promptly started filling out with shoots and the richly green, heart shaped leaves that are characteristic of hydrangeas.
Last year the blooms were not a very deep blue because I don’t do anything to change the neutral soil and somewhat alkaline water. It took frequent watering then to keep the still new plant from wilting
The Annabelle hydrangea never sulks the way the blue and variegated types do for me.
Those large variegated leaves are Frances Williams hostas unfolding in front.
