Ellen Huff Oak Leaf Hydrangea

$44.99

Large, dense, white flower clusters are held upright above the dark green oak leaf-shaped foliage. The midsummer blooms develop a rosy-pink hue in the fall as the leaves turn deep red-bronze. Tan-brown exfoliating bark is attractive in the winter. An excellent landscape specimen or foundation plant. Useful as a flowering hedge plant. Deciduous. Snow Queen's blooms are 6 to 8 inches long. Oakleaf hydrangea is native to all the states in the southeastern quadrant of the United States, from North Carolina south to Florida and west to Louisiana.

Care

Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry. Prefers organically rich, well-drained soils, with shelter from harsh afternoon sun (partial shade). Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize regularly during growing season.

Growth Habit

Moderate growing; reaches 4 to 5 ft. tall, 5 to 6 ft. wide. Deciduous. Blooms on old wood; prune to shape in summer after flowering. 

 Toxicity

The leaves, buds, flowers, and bark all contain the toxin, so if your dog munches any part of your hydrangeas, he could get sick. Hydrangeas also are toxic to other pets like cats and horses. Hydrangeas are not deer or rabbit resistant.
