More Information

Description You’ll love the big, full, dreamy blooms of Gatsby Moon® oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia). Most oakleaf hydrangeas have loose, open lacecap flowers, but Gatsby Moon is a lush, full, mophead type, with hundreds of ivory-green florets packed into every bloom. The flowers are irresistibly touchable and unique. Of course, they are coupled with the glorious red-burgundy fall color that oakleaf hydrangeas are known for and the showy framework of bare branches and peeling bark. We simply adore oakleaf hydrangeas and think that the Gatsby series from Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs are the best on the market. If you are looking for an easy-care native flowering shrub with super showy flowers and fall color, it’s hard to beat! Details Botanical name: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Brother Edward'
Patent #: USPP 25,413
Common name: Oakleaf hydrangea
Zone: 5-9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun) in cool areas; part-sun (4-6 hours sun) in warm climates.
Height x width: 6-8' tall and wide
Flower color: White
Foliage color: Green, turning deep red-burgundy in autumn
Season of Interest: Summer-fall
Uses: Flower gardens, landscaping, specimen, flowering hedge, pollinator gardens, native plant gardens.
How To Grow Soil: Like other hydrangeas, oakleafs do best in well-drained soil with average moisture. They can take some dryness once established, but they do not tolerate wet conditions. Adaptable in terms of soil pH.
Light: Plants can take full sun (6+ hrs/day) in cooler areas, but afternoon shade is recommended in warm climates. Overall, oakleaf hydrangeas have the best performance in shade compared to other types of hydrangeas, but flowering and fall color are best in at least some 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 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 & Pruning: Oakleaf hydrangeas bloom on old wood; that means they have their flowers buds for the following season all through winter, so they cannot be cut back without removing flower buds. It is best to avoid pruning or trimming them altogether, though you may selectively remove branches to develop a nice shape and silhouette if desired.

Impressive!

Although they were small, they were very healthy and are growing very well! Every plant arrived healthy, and every plant is thriving!

Hoping for recovery

The plants reached me in very bad shape. GGP was quick and wonderful in getting new plants to me, but unfortunately those came with rust. Hoping I can nurse them back. Great customer service but plant health was not so great.

Gatsby Moon

This plant arrived in excellent condition already sporting 2 blooms. It has since settled in, is putting on nice growth, and the wonderful cone is flowering. This is going to be a showstopper! Thank you for the beautiful plant.

Wonderful HYDRANGEA!

My Gatsby Moon Oakleaf Hydrangea (what a great name!) is loving the sun and getting huge! We're due for a heatwave over the next few days, so it's currently in a pot in the shade, and I'm watering it often. When things cool down I'll be giving Mr. Gatsby pride of place in a terraced flowerbed across from our front door, with plenty of fresh soil. I've got a canopy with sun-shielding fabric I can put over it, just to ride out the heat if it continues. The blooms may not arrive until next season, but I'll be keeping this beauty dewy, healthy and happy until then. Thank you!

A Stunner!

I got 3 Gatsby Moon Oakleaf Hydrangea this spring and they have never stopped blooming! The leaves are huge and I literally gasped when I first saw them! I think they are very unique and I love them.
