The Alice Oakleaf Hydrangea is the perfect shrub for the large spaces in shady parts of your garden. It will grow from 5 to 12 feet tall, depending on your soil, moisture levels, shade and local climate. It will be as wide as it is tall. With spectacular fall colors of deep-red, purple and bronze, its large, lobed leaves are a joy to behold. In summer it carries enormous spikes of white flowers, 12 inches long, or even more. Tolerant of all possible light levels, from full sun to full shade, this is the perfect plant for a woodland garden, or in the background of shrub beds. Use it as a screen between wooded areas and the more formal parts of your garden. Plant it to fill awkward, shady corners. Use it among other woodland plants, like rhododendrons, azaleas, ferns, and camellias. Wherever you grow it, this eye-catching and spectacular shrub is loved by every gardener in the know – it’s a ‘must have’.

  • Spectacular huge white flower spikes
  • Dramatic large lobed leaves
  • Rich and vibrant fall colors
  • Grows from sun to full shade
  • Perfect choice for wooded areas

Plant the Alice Oakleaf Hydrangea in rich, moist, well-drained soil for maximum growth. Add plenty of organic material to the soil when planting and mulch each spring with more. Keep well-watered, especially during dry spells. It will grow well from zone 5 to 9, and in zone 5 it should be planted in a place sheltered from cold winds. Remove any dead wood in spring, and prune for shape, if needed, in summer as the flowers begin to fade. This superior variety has disease-free foliage and is rarely bothered by pests.
