Will Hydrangeas Grow In Utah?

Yes, they will!  Hardy Hydrangeas are excellent summer-flowering shrubs.  They do best in part shade or afternoon shade and they like rich soil - lots of compost.  Add a new layer of compost and mulch every year.  One of the best choices for our area is the Oak Leaf Hydrangea and it comes in several varieties - several flower colors.  Here's a nice Oakleaf Hydrangea I spotted last summer in the Salt Lake area:

  I have noticed other Hydrangeas around the Salt Lake City area that are well established, blooming and looking awesome.  Unfortunately, it's difficult to know the exact varieties.  Yesterday,  I was driving around the east side of salt lake and I saw this long hedge of pink and blue flowering Hydrangeas.  It was absolutely stunning:
