Design Ideas: Oakleaf Hydrangea, with its unique lobed leaves that produce rich fall color, works well in shrub borders to extend the interest beyond the flowering season. Also lends a fiery hue to otherwise deep-green shade gardens. Plant as an individual to appreciate the unique foliage texture and leaf shape, or in a cluster to intensify its impact on the garden. Not as prim and proper as the traditional Hydrangea, it is a natural in the woodland scene and among rangy natives.

Prefers organically rich, well-drained soils. Mulch to retain soil moisture. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize regularly during growing season. Provide winter protection in zone 5. Blooms on old wood; prune to shape in summer after flowering. Remove weak, damaged stems in early spring.


The species Hydrangea quercifolia is the most well known New World hydrangea. It was classified by John Bartram, the King's botanist in the American colonies. He sent the first to Kew and named it for the lobed oak-like shape of the plant's large leaves. This shrub is native to forests from Georgia south to Florida and west to Mississippi.
