Oakleaf Hydrangea is one of the
few flowering plants that will offer full bloom in full sun or almost total
shade. It prefers moist roots thus mulching is benificial. Oakleaf hydrangea is a white-blooming
shrub with a year round display. It blooms well in areas where summers are
somewhat hot, but it is winter hardy farther north than the macrophylla.
One big advantage of the Oakleaf is that it can thrive in much dryer
locations than its cousins. Some hydrangeas struggle in sandy soil, but
the Oakleaf hydrangeas thrive with little attention. Alice's large
flowers and overall size distinguish it from the native species.
With 10-12 inch panicles of white clusters that change color later in
the year alongside beautiful shades of burgundy in the fall. Alice is a
superior choice of Oakleaf for any landscape.
