Hydrangeas As a Winter Annual in The Deser South West?

Probabaly a stupid question since I have not seen it before but hey I'm a trend setter. I googled it and I can find out everything but the basicis. Are they frost sensitive? Anyone have experience with these? I would like to use them in a pots for the winter. Temp range will be mid 30s as a low mid 80s for the high with very low humidity.

The low temps will hurt you, in the 80's for a high is great.

"Frost sensitive?" - Absolutely, one hard frost and leave's turn yellow. Two hard frost's, leave's fall off.

At this particular location they wont likley get any frost. But I do need them to bloom repeatedly with the assistance of fertilizers of course.

You don't need frost, soil temperature's will make the hydrangea's go in to dormancy.
