The Oakleaf Hydrangea, or Hydrangea quercifolia, is an exquisite heirloom shrub native to the Southeastern United States, celebrated for its stunning, season-long visual interest. Growing up to 7 ft tall, this deciduous shrub features an open crown with shoots emerging from underground stolons, often forming expansive colonies. Its distinct, lobed foliage resembles oak leaves, presenting a yellowish-green top and a downy-white underside.

In early summer, the plant blooms with erect clusters of white flowers that transition from creamy white to pink and finally to a rustic, papery rusty-brown as they age. Come fall, the leaves transform into vivid reds, bronzes, and purples, offering a striking display that persists through winter. Thriving in moist, acidic organic soils under partial shade or full sun, the Oakleaf Hydrangea is a versatile choice for natural or landscaped woodlands and a cornerstone in garden design for its unmatched beauty and textural appeal.

No stratification needed. Surface sow seeds on top of the soil in flats with well draining soil that is slightly acidic (pH 5.0-6.5). Prefers full sun and keep moist, but not soggy. Transplant when the seedlings are strong enough after harden off for a week.
