More Information

Description Ruby Slippers' Oakleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia) is known for its color-changing flowers and foliage. Flowers start as a bright white and turn to red as it matures. The handsome oak-shaped leaves follow suit, turning a bright red in fall. Not many hydrangeas put on a fall display like Ruby Slippers. This native hydrangea looks at home in any landscape or garden. Its compact habit is great for smaller spaces. It requires no pruning and is tolerant of heat and shade, making it easy to grow! Details Botanical name: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Ruby Slippers'
Common name: Oakleaf hydrangea
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours), Part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 3.5' tall x 4 to 5 ft. wide
Flower color: White, turning red with age.
Foliage color: Green.
Season of interest: Summer-fall
Uses: Flower gardens, Landscaping, Specimen, Flowering hedge, Pollinator gardens, Native plant gardens
How To Grow Soil: Like other hydrangeas, oakleaf does best in well-drained soil with average moisture. They can take some dryness once established, but they do not tolerate wet conditions.
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours), Part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Water: Average. Oakleaf hydrangeas do not tolerate overwatering or poor drainage.
Space: min. 6' apart
Fertilizing: If desired, fertilize in early spring, once the ground has thawed, with a granular rose fertilizer.
Winterizing: Oakleaf hydrangeas are very hardy and easily withstand harsh winters, so they need no special care. A good 2-3" layer of mulch helps protect the shallow roots. Do not cut back or prune oakleaf hydrangeas (see below for more info).
Maintenance: Oakleaf hydrangeas bloom on old wood, which means they have their flower buds for the following season all through winter, so they should not be cut back. It is best to avoid pruning or trimming them all together, though you may selectively remove branches to develop a nice shape and silhouette if desired.

Help

I received my plant. There were no leaves, just a stalk. I have babied it. Watered it and now placed in the pot outside. I even talk to it. The stalk is green but nothing else. What should I do?
