This is by far the most beautiful oak leaf I have ever grown. I get compliments on it constantly, a must-have for hydrangea enthusiasts!
Gatsby Star® Oakleaf hydrangea Hydrangea quercifolia
- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
It's got star power!
Doubled blooms are similar to those of 'Snowflake', but the individual petals are pointed instead of rounded. The result is a beautiful, lacy panicle - and a very showy plant. It's a fun way to add some unexpected drama to woodland gardens.Fall InterestNative to North America
