Comments on Photo #2: sure looks like my oak leaf hydrangea, which suffered last year in Charlotte NC area due to intense summer heat. Hopefully temps won't be as brutal this year, especially after a new planting bed containing 8 Little Lime hydrangeas.

Thanks for the article - I need a hedge to hide my neighbor's messy yard and wanted something that is native, I will be planting them late spring as your article says.

Do oak leaf hydrangeas bloom on old wood or new wood? Mine were planted in the spring, no blooms yet, should I prune for shape? I'm in Central Texas.
