Hydrangea quercifolia Snow Queen - Oak-Leaved Hydrangea - LARGE

Product ref: SP22027

Availability: In stock

Hydrangea quercifolia Snow Queen is a wonderful, deciduous flowering shrub.

The unusual feature of this Hydrangea are the very large leaves that have a very similar appearance to those of the oak tree - hence the common name. The foliage is green Spring and Summer and then takes on beautiful tones of deep red and purple as Autumn approaches, making it a fantastic addition to any garden that may be lacking something special in the autumnal period.

The blooms of Snow Queen Hydrangeas are formed in conical clusters, are a creamy white in colour and plentiful. This is a truly wonderful and under-rated shrub that should be more widely planted - it is perfect for providing a very long season of interest. Try it in a mixed border combined with other shrubs and perennials or even planted in to patio containers.

The oak leaf Hydrangea can reach a height of around 1.5 metres (5ft) at maturity, but is easily maintained at half this size if desired with pruning.

Strong bushy plants supplied in approx. 7-10 litre containers.
