This week, its Hydrangea quercifolia, or commonly known as Oakleaf Hydrangea. What’s so great about this hydrangea? Everything, as far as I’m concerned, which is why the selection ‘Snow Queen’ has a spot planted right by our front door. The exfoliating bark on the coarsely branched plants add winter character, followed by the larger deeply lobed oak-like leaves in the summer, of course topped by the wonderful pure white conical shaped flowers (which eventually fade to pink and then brown), fallowed by the outstanding shades of bronze, orange and maroon fall colors. (Grows in sun or shade / 6’x6’ / flowers dried for floral arrangements) Look for ‘Snow Queen’, ‘Alice’, ‘Peewee’ and more!
