Now it is no secret that here at Provender Nurseries we are great fans of Hydrangea quercifolia with their large dramatic oak-shaped leaves and stunning autumn colour. The leaves are large and leathery making them strangely more appealing.
However the flowers of Hydrangea quercifolia also make you stop and take note. The long panicles of flowers are freely produced on the end of the stout stems in the summer and last through to the autumn. The flowers of the Gatsby Series change in colour as they fade extending the season of interest. These Hydrangea can be happily planted in amongst other flowering shrubs and can make an impressive sight when planted en masse.
In the Proven Winners® range there are some brilliant Hydrangea quercifolia to select from:
- Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Gatsby Moon’ has huge fully white flowers. The flowers fade to green and then wine-red in the autumn. Height 125cm
- Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Gatsby Star’ has beautiful double, star-shaped white flowers which change to shades of pink. Height 125cm
- Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Gatsby Pink’ has flowers that open white and quickly change to rich pink in colour. Height 125cm
