Hydrangea quercifolia 'Little Honey' - Golden Oakleaf Hydrangea

Little Honey Oakleaf Hydrangea ; Hydrangea is a fascinating genus of plants with remarkable diversity. It includes vines, shrubs, trees and semi-herbaceous plants, many with outstanding ornamental features. The Showiest Oakleaf Yet! Golden spring leaves, white blooms, scarlet fall foliage, and even bright red stems -- what DOESN'T Little Honey have? The most beautiful and distinctive Oakleaf Hydrangea I've ever had the pleasure of seeing, Little Honey adds a whole new look to this family of multi-season shrubs! Little Honey just oozes charm, from its bright gold foliage to its scarlet autumn tones!

The show begins in early spring, when the large, oakleaf-shaped leaves unfurl a brilliant gold. This color remains right through spring and well into summer, eventually darkening to chartreuse and finally green just as the huge 6- to 8-inch white bloom trusses -- giant snowy wands in the shade garden! -- appear to liven things up again. And with the first nip of autumn cold, the leaves burnish a brilliant scarlet! Even the stems turn red, and if you live in the southern portion of Little Honey's hardiness range, these leaves and stems will stay put right through winter! How's that for all-season beauty! Just 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide, Little Honey is the perfect size for the foundation, patio, front-yard accent, or any place of honor in the sunny (in the north) to partially shaded (further south) garden.
