Oak-leaved hydrangea has leaves shaped like oak leaves. The plant grows in sun or shade and prefers a rich, moist soil. It may not be as hardy as other hydrangeas. The top usually dies back during the winter and it needs shelter from high winds. Oak-leaved hydrangea transplants easily and has a very coarse texture and good red fall color. The hairy young twigs are reddish. The growth rate is slow. The plant grows 4 to 6 feet tall and spreads 3 to 5 feet. The flowers, produced in midsummer in panicles, are at first white, then fade to pink and then tan.
