Can you see where Gatsby Star® oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia) gets its name? Each enormous bloom is a constellation of intricate star-shaped florets! The look is positively stunning, whether in summer when the blooms are fresh or in winter when they dry to sculptural skeletons on the plant. They are set off by deep red-burgundy fall color that makes this plant a powerhouse all year-round. It’s one of the best hydrangeas to flower in shade!

Description

Hydrangea  hy-DRAYN-juh

Hydrangeas are a genus of over 75 species and 600 named cultivars that are native to a wide range of regions and countries including Japan, Asia, Indonesia, Himalayan mountains and the Americas. Hydrangeas can grow as climbing vines and trees but are most commonly grown as a shrub. The beautiful flowers produced by this plant is what makes these so popular. Most put on a showy display from early spring all the way into fall. The large flowers come in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes.

Many people remember hydrangea shrubs from their childhood. Today we are falling in love with them all over again and the good news is that we can now grow many hydrangea varieties our grandmothers never even dreamed of. Some newer hydrangeas grow in colder climates, some are so small they will fit into the perennial border and others have amazingly large blooms and deep colors.
