Hydrangea quercifolia 'Pee Wee' is a true dwarf (2-4' tall). It does well in shade or partial shade. Blooms for 8-10 weeks beginning in late May. Orange, red and purple fall leaf colors. Initial flowers are white changing to rose-pink as the season changes. Also, it suckers less. Zones 5-9, vendors list it as zone 5 or 6 on the low end. Could not find any info on origin. H. quercifolia 'Little Honey' is a branch sport.
