More Information

Description Can you see where Gatsby Star® oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia) gets its name? Each enormous bloom is a constellation of intricate star-shaped florets! The look is positively stunning, whether in summer when the blooms are fresh or in winter when they dry to sculptural skeletons on the plant. They are set off by deep red-burgundy fall color that makes this plant a powerhouse all year-round. The Gatsby series of oakleaf hydrangeas was introduced by Proven Winners and selected for its range of unique sizes and flower types. We love all four selections and recommend them for a variety of landscape applications: native plant gardens, pollinator gardens, flower gardens, and landscaping. It's one of the best hydrangeas to flower in shade! Details Botanical name: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Doughill'
Patent #: USPP 25,412
Common name: Oakleaf hydrangea
Zone: 5-9
Sun exposure: Sun in cool areas; part shade 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.

Gatsby Star

Arrived in very good condition.
Transplanted successfully in a very well prepared location with lots of sun and hole good drainage and soil amendments. Looks like it has adjusted well and is very healthy. Located near other Oakleaf Hydrangeas. Small plant. Hope it takes off and has a few beautiful flowers next spring.

Hydrangea success!

I have tried to grow hydrangeas several times at my new home. The ones I purchased came in great shape, were easy to plant, and are thriving. I am really happy with the purchase.
