Alice Oakleaf Hydrangea

Hydrangea quercifolia 'Alice' is an absolute must-have for any garden enthusiast! This beautiful deciduous shrub boasts large, pyramidal flower panicles that will leave you in awe. With its striking white flowers in the summer, it adds a touch of elegance to any space. The blooms measure 10-14 inches long and bloom for 6-8 weeks, gradually fading to pink and brown by late summer.

Not only are the flowers breathtaking, but the foliage is also noteworthy. The oak-like leaves are large and dark green, with 3-7 lobes. They turn attractive shades of bronze, maroon, and purple in autumn, adding an extra touch of color to your garden. The mature stems exfoliate to reveal a rich brown inner bark, which is stunning in winter.

This hardy plant is easy to grow and maintain. It prefers to be planted in dappled part shade to full shade, in organically rich, medium moisture soils. It thrives near downspouts and moist shaded spot (even under oaks) moist soils, and adding a summer mulch will help retain soil moisture. It's low maintenance and doesn't require much pruning. The flowers will look good even when they dance dry on the wind in the winter. If needed, prune back to closest pair of buds Blooms are on old wood, so prune with a light hand.

For best results, give the plant a sheltered location and winter protection, especially in USDA Zone 5. Although it is hardy, harsh winters can cause the plant to lose significant numbers of flower buds or die to the ground, respectively impairing or destroying the bloom for the coming year. With its show-stopping flowers, disease-free foliage, and superior fall color, Hydrangea quercifolia 'Alice' is a true garden treasure.
