Rainbowgardener: Thanks so much for all the great advise. I will see if I can rub the dirt off first. Really appreciate the help!
Luis: I was thinking of planting an umbrella next to the hydrangea since I planted it in full sun and don't want to move it I'm KIDDING! Thanks for the great information. I really am thinking of planting a tree on the west side of it to give it some relief from the afternoon sun. I wanted to plant a tree in that general area anyway. If that doesn't shade it enough, I will move it somewhere else more appropriate. Thanks again!
