Conical clusters of white flowers appear from midsummer to autumn, fading to pink as they mature. This deciduous hydrangea makes a wonderful specimen plant for a partly shady border with moist, well-drained soil. Later-flowering than other varieties, the interesting, oak-shaped leaves turn shades of bronze-purple in autumn.
- Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Where necessary remove misplaced or diseased shoots in spring
