What's In Bloom Today?

By: Sandra Nelson

Oak Leaf Hydrangeas are show stoppers right now!



These easy to grow, long-blooming deciduous shrubs are the perfect choice for a hedge, a garden focal point, a foundation planting or to naturalize in a mass at the edge of the property. Reaching up to 8 feet tall, they prefer full sun, but will do well in partial shade as well. Oak leaf hydrangeas need rich, well-drained soil and a moderate amount of moisture throughout the hot, dry summer months. The white blooms of summer make excellent cut and dried flowers, while the foliage and bark give an array of colors from crimson to bronze to provide winter interest .
