The oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia) is a deciduous shrub native to the southeastern United States. It's known for its large, oak-shaped leaves and stunning conical clusters of white, pink, or purple flowers that bloom in late spring to summer.

Plant Information

  • Botanical name: Hydrangea quercifolia
  • Family: Hydrangeaceae
  • Type: Deciduous shrub
  • Hardiness zones: 5-9
  • Height: 4-6 feet (1.2-1.8 meters)
  • Spread: 4-6 feet (1.2-1.8 meters)
  • Bloom time: Late spring to summer
  • Flower colors: White, pink, or purple


  • Site selection: Choose a location with well-draining soil and partial to full sun. Oakleaf hydrangeas can tolerate more sun than other hydrangea varieties but still appreciate some shade during the hottest part of the day.
  • Soil preparation: Amend the soil with compost or well-rotted manure to improve drainage and fertility. The ideal soil pH for oakleaf hydrangea is between 5.5 and 6.5.
  • Planting: Space plants 4-6 feet (1.2-1.8 meters) apart to allow for proper air circulation and growth. Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball and as deep. Gently loosen the root ball, place the plant in the hole, and backfill with amended soil.


  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water deeply once a week or more frequently during hot, dry periods.
  • Fertilizing: Apply a slow-release, balanced fertilizer in early spring before new growth begins. Avoid high-nitrogen fertilizers, as they can promote leaf growth at the expense of blooms.
  • Pruning: Prune in late winter or early spring before new growth starts. Remove any dead or damaged branches, and shape the plant as desired.


  • Pest and disease control: Inspect plants regularly for signs of pests like aphids or spider mites. Treat any infestations with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Oakleaf hydrangeas are generally disease-resistant, but proper spacing and watering will help prevent issues like powdery mildew or leaf spot.
  • Mulching: Apply a 2-3 inch (5-7.6 cm) layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to help conserve moisture and suppress weeds. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the stem to avoid rot.


  • Aesthetic appeal: Oakleaf hydrangeas add beauty and elegance to gardens and landscapes with their large, showy flowers and attractive foliage.
  • Wildlife attraction: The flowers provide nectar for pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, while the seeds and foliage offer food and shelter for birds and small mammals.
  • Low maintenance: With proper care, oakleaf hydrangeas are relatively easy to grow and maintain, making them a great choice for gardeners of all skill levels.
  • Fall interest: In addition to the stunning blooms, oakleaf hydrangeas also offer brilliant fall foliage in shades of red, orange, and purple.
