I inherited a hydrangea bush in the front lawn of the house I bought 4 years ago. It blooms beautifully but it has been a chore to maintain, My front lawn gets at least 4-5 hours of full sun, so constant watering is a must and then keeping the fully bloomed heads from drooping is another problem. This summer, a whole row near the center ended up on the ground (not very attractive). As lovely as it can be, (I get many compliments about it) I am ready to get rid of it. Are there any pointers, tips advice out there to help me with this plant?

P.S Sorry to be a Negative Nellie on this topic on such a lovely plant.

I live on the East Coast of Canada and have generally taken a sink or swim approach to gardening - which horrifies my landscaper father. I want my plants to adapt to the climate and their location. If they don't, I replace them with something that does. We have an almost semi-tropical summer climate on PEI with alternating sun and rain so I simply don't water. My classic-blue big-leaf hydrangea by the front door is the only exception. It is vigorous and well-adapted but its glorious blooms just look so sad when they droop in hot weather. I love it dearly and couldn't imagine my stoop without it or my kitchen table without it's bouyant blooms.
