The Snow Queen Oakleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia 'Snow Queen') is a deciduous shrub known for its remarkable display of flowers and striking foliage. This article will provide an overview of the plant, including its growth habits and care requirements, as well as a closer look at its breathtaking flowers and captivating foliage.
The Snow Queen Oakleaf Hydrangea is a medium-sized, deciduous shrub native to the southeastern United States. It is well-suited for USDA hardiness zones 5 through 9 and thrives in well-drained, slightly acidic soil with partial shade to full sun. The plant grows at a moderate rate, reaching a mature height of 4 to 5 feet and a spread of 5 to 6 feet. Its upright, spreading habit makes it an excellent choice for borders, mass plantings, or as a specimen plant in the garden.
One of the most alluring features of the Snow Queen Oakleaf Hydrangea is its exceptional display of flowers. The plant produces large, cone-shaped panicles of creamy white flowers that gradually turn a subtle pink as they age. The blooms appear in late spring to early summer and persist for several weeks, creating a stunning display in the garden.
The flowers not only add visual interest to the landscape, but they also attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies, providing a valuable resource for these beneficial insects during the warmer months. Additionally, the dried flower heads can be left on the plant for winter interest or harvested for use in floral arrangements.
The foliage of the Snow Queen Oakleaf Hydrangea is as captivating as its flowers. The plant features large, deeply lobed, oak-like leaves that emerge a rich green color and turn to a brilliant shade of red, orange, and burgundy in the fall. This dramatic change in foliage color adds an extra layer of interest to the garden and makes the Snow Queen Oakleaf Hydrangea a valuable addition to any landscape.
