A graceful shade loving shrub and one of the few hydrangeas native to the United States. Big dramatic, white blooms in summer plus four seasons of interest. A tremendous advantage of the Oakleaf is that it can thrive in much dryer locations than its cousins and thrives with very little attention. Outstanding cinnamon-brown exfoliating bark and vivid mahogany-red fall foliage.
Good drainage and dappled light to part shade, especially afternoon shade.
