Training Oakleaf Hydrangeas to a Wall or Fence

The Oakleaf Hydrangea is a dramatic plant, but it can get too large for some areas. Consider training the Oakleaf over a wall, a fence, or even a doorway.

Thanks for the idea and the suggestion of Snowflake. I have been looking at the oakleafs and had not heard of it.

I do grow Oakleaf Hydrangeas, but like Teresa I had never heard of Snowflake. I have not seen one that has blooms that droop. This is an excellent article and I am going on the search for Snowflake.
I love my garden.... and Jesus, and coffee, and naps.......

Very nice article and the pictures are gorgeous! I have been wanting to get an oakleaf hydrangea, but so far had not because of the space. What a great use of space Thumbs up
