Cultural Requirements: Best in moist, well-drained, slightly acidic, organic rich soil. Mulch is recommended for keeping roots cool and moist. Prefers sun to part shade.

Ornamental Characteristics: This very handsome hydrangea is a shrub for all seasons. The deep green, sometimes glossy, oakleaf-shaped leaves are 3-8 inches long and turn a deep burgundy fall color that can persist into December. Large, 4-12-inch, cone-shaped panicles open white then eventually turn a purplish-pink. Older bark is a cinnamon-brown color and tends to peel off in strips.
