More about Oakleaf Hydrangea...

Noteworthy Characteristics

A native of the U.S., the oakleaf hydrangea is a very fast growing and easy-to-grow shrub. In summer, oakleaf hydrangea flowers in clusters, and the white flowers fade to a pinkish-brown in fall; their floral display is extremely long lasting. The large, oblong to cone-shape flower clusters grow up to 14 inches in length. But the plant's distinguishing characteristic is its oak leaf-shaped foliage. The leathery green leaves are large and turn purple, orangey-bronze or red in the fall.

Uses

As understory shrubs in the wild, oakleaf hydrangea are perfect in woodland gardens. Their big leaves give them a coarse plant texture, useful as a contrast with plants of a more delicate texture. The dried flowers are used in crafts.

Culture & Care Tips

Oakleaf hydrangea will tolerate various types of soils but do best in well-drained, humus-rich, slightly acidic soil. In the warmer climate of the South you'll want to give them some afternoon shade. In the North they can get by with less shade. Keep in mind that too much shade may reduce the size and number of flower panicles and the intensity of their fall foliage color.
