I've taken to 'flood irrigation' in a dish built up just a little larger than the drip zone and flood it every few days when the sun is hot in the afternoon...
They are a nice addition to the garden but most of the sun is during the heat of the day...

I'm thinking about adding a high rise shrub that would not distract from the hydrangeas ,,, yet possibly provide a little cover... We have access to dappled willow and Cinderella Lilac grafted onto a 6' trunk...

That would be a nice addition to your location, giving some medium height to that backdrop...
