    Genus deciduous shrub species with showy flowers gathered in inflorescences. Hydrangea quercifolia is a deciduous bushy shrub up to 1.5-2.5 m tall. The bark is brown and flakes off in winter, revealing new light brown wood. The leaves, up to 20 cm large, are lobed and resemble those of the oaks from which the plant takes its origin

    Botanical Information

    Botanical name. In autumn before fall, the leaves take on magnificent orange-red hues. In spring it produces numerous apical inflorescences made up of small creamy white flowers.

    Pedoclimatic needs

    It requires fresh, well-drained soil with a neutral or sub-acid reaction, although it tolerates moderately alkaline soil. It likes partially shaded exposure but is also suitable for cultivation in the sun. Winter pruning should be avoided as the flowers are produced by the apical buds. Containment pruning should therefore be carried out by trimming the branches after flowering. It does not resist prolonged drought and in the case of particularly dry summers it must be watered regularly. Compared to the more cultivated H. macrophylla, this species is less demanding and resists sun and drought better.
