I bought a Nikko Blue a month and a half ago. I planted it in front of the house which is facing west. It gets sun from about 11:00 to 3:00. It took beautifully. It's growing new leaves and I'm excited. Will it bloom next year?

They bloom on the previous year's growth, so it should bloom next year. Don't prune it, though, because you'll be cutting off the buds developing for next year. Being in zone 6a you are probably subject to late spring freezes. This can kill the buds as well and cause it not to bloom.

Thanks, Alankhart. They are temperamental little things, aren’t they? And yet I used to rent a duplex and they had a very large hydrangea in front of the house. I lived there 4 years and I never saw anybody come to water, feed or mulch it in all that time. It didn't matter, it boomed huge flowers every year like clock work.
