Hydrangea Quercifolia known as Oak Leaved Hydrangea is a low growing wide spreading Hydrangea, a deciduous shrub producing showy white flowers mid Summer. These flowers gradually change to a beautiful shade of pale pink as the flowers mature.The large coarsely textured foliage has fantastic autumn colour of vibrant red and purple. The Oak Leaved Hydrangea prefers to be planted in partial shade or sun in a generally sheltered position and needs plenty of water when it’s first planted. To get the best show of foliage and flowers choose a shadier position, remember this is a woodland plant naturally and it does respond best when planted in this type of setting with the roots kept moist and with shade from the canopy, although this particular variety of Hydrangea will cope with some degree of drought once it is firmly established.
