The Q&A Archives: oak leaf hydranga

Question: I was given 2 oak leaf hydranga. I know nothing about them. Are they a bush or a tree? Please send me all the information you can.

Answer: Oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia) is a 4-season shrub that deserves a place in any garden. Oakleaves are irregular spreading deciduous shrubs with dramatic large white pyramidal flower clusters (usually by the Fourth of July) that remain on the shrub for months. Choose a planting site that gets morning sun and afternoon shade. Moist, well-drained soil is preferred because the plant will not tolerate soggy soil or excessively dry soil.

These are very easy shrubs to grow. Just water deeply once or twice a week and enjoy!
