    Our west facing garden had hydrangeas when I lived in southern California. They prefer shade but we gave them summer heat and sun. Sometimes they would wilt but if I watered them throughly they always came back. I trimmed them a lot each fall after they died back. I would trim off the old woody branches just to a new green section and just above a leaf outcropping. You can change the color of the flower according to if you feed them alkaline or acidic. They make beautiful cut flower arrangements. We had them in our daughter’s wedding bouquet, even the ones from our garden.
    Good luck.
