Oakleaf Hydrangea

Planted outside the guest bedroom, this oakleaf hydrangea creates the considered  view from bedroom windows.  Family parking court disappears just beyond hydrangea, camellias, and dwarf boxwoods.   Granite stepping stones create paths to front and back porches.   Native to the southeastern United States, oakleaf hydrangeas  grow in   USDA Hardiness Zones 5-9   This hydrangea receives only morning sun and seems quite content.  In its third year, the oakleaf has begun to crowd the path.  Wonderful, just as we intended.
