Water on hydrangea leaves in full sun
It has been my experience that many bedding plants', particularly hydrangeas, leaves will burn if you get water on them in the full light of the sun. I have been in a "rousing" discourse with my fiance about this as he does not believe any harm will come to the leaves if they get water on them during a full sun day. There are many websites that say it is a myth that water on the leaves will cause them to burn in full sun. I am finding this to be very frustrating as I have, in the past, caused the burn to occur by getting the plants wet in full sun....I know what I saw. My fiance is wanting to hear what the master gardeners have to say about the subject in order to put the issue to rest. I have to say that I am about ready to go outside and sprinkle my beautiful hydrangeas in the full sun, just to prove it to him. I will honor whatever your answer turns out to be. Thank you.
