My wife and I once visited Sao Miguel. Ever since my wife wants to have one of those hydrangeas (hortensias). My concerns are:
- are those hydrangeas the same as those commercially available in Europe?
- how frost hardy are the azorean hydrangeas? If they would survive in zone 7a, would they grow as large as in the azores?
- what kind of soil would I need to provide to get the same vibrant blue color?
