OAKLEAF HYDRANGEA  Hydrangea quercifolia  

 

The Oakleaf hydrangea is a beautiful , white-blooming , multi stemmed shrub. Indigenous to the southeastern US.

Has large,  oakleaf shaped leaves, that are leathery & turn purple, red, orange and bronze in the fall.

It blooms best in areas where summers are somewhat hot, but it is more  winter hardy than the mophead hydrangeas.. Has  long blooming period.

It thrives in much dryer locations than other hydrangeas.  Oakleaf hydrangeas thrive in sandy soil, where other hydrangeas  struggle

Requires little pruning.  

In the wild,  these are understory plants- need afternoon shade in hotter areas. In colder areas,  need less shade. Too  much shade  will affect fall colors not to be that intense.

Needs well draining soil and does not tolerate wet feet.

Does not need much attention at all
