SNOW QUEEN OAKLEAF HYDRANGEA
This cultivar Oakleaf Hydrangea is an attractive woody hydrangea that grows best in a protected location. It leafs out later in the spring than other hydrangea species. Leathery, green, deeply lobed leaves resemble an oak’s leaf. Fall color is a mixture of red, orange, and purple tones. Large panicles of white flowers bloom in the summer, and fade to pink as they mature. Bark is exfoliating and rich orange-cinnamon, giving the shrub great winter interest.
