Hydrangea quercifolia 'Harmony' - oakleaf hydrangea

Oakleaf hydrangea comes from southeastern USA. It is an attractive mound-forming shrub with oak-like, deeply cut leaves of bright green colour turning purple-bronze in autumn. The flowers of Harmony variety appear at the beginning of summer. They come out in heavy panicles of pure white, double flowers that get so heavy when mature that they droop. Hydrangeas like moist (not wet), slightly acidic soil. This variety can stand in full sun if enough moisture is provided.

Pruning is not needed, you can shape it before August (after flowering) or remove unwanted branches in late winter. Fully hardy.
