Description

Oakleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia) is a large shrub that can grow 6′ to 8′ tall with a comparable spread. It prefers moist, well drained soil in full- to part-shade, though it can tolerate full sun. The leaves are, as the name suggests, oak leaf-shaped with 3 to 7 lobes and dark-green coloring. The leaves also turn an attractive, deep red/purple in the autumn. Oakleaf Hydrangea’s most striking feature is the 4″-12″ panicle of white blooms that appear in May and last throughout the summer, turning a light pink/purple before drying out. The dried blooms add winter interest to the garden as they persist throughout the season. Oakleaf Hydrangea flowers attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, and the seeds provide food for songbirds.

Shipping Information

At Direct Native Plants, we take many precautions to make sure your plants will arrive in the best condition possible.

Our perennials are grown in a 4” quart-sized pot. These plants are then cut back to fit our packaging, placed in a protective clamshell container (made from recycled materials), and then shipped to you in a cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Perennials can be shipped in bundles up to 6. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Trees and shrubs are grown in a 7” tall container (referred to as a 1-gallon pot), and depending on the species will be between 12” and 36”. We bag the root section of these plants to prevent them from drying out in transit and ship them in a tall cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: Trees and shrubs can be shipped in bundles up to 4. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Direct Native Plants now ships via FedEx. Orders ship out Monday through Wednesday of each week, and depending on how close you are to our nursery in Maryland, shipping will take anywhere from 1-4 business days.
