Why plant Snow Queen Oakleaf Hydrangea?

Snow Queen is taking winter by storm with the stunning rich chocolate colored bark left behind in winter, when the blooms and colorful oak-like leaves fade for the season. Let this queen color your landscape with pure white blooms in summer that transition to a delicate dusky pink in fall. The oak leaf-shaped foliage adds to the show when the dark green leaves turn a red and bronze in the fall. This stunner brings royalty home with its sophisticated presence and gala of colors.

Snow Queen is quite literally the queen of the garden, being a choice pick of native hydrangea shrubs. Due to how well this hydrangea fits into a natural landscape, Snow Queen won the Philadelphia Horticultural Society Gold Medal for Garden Merit in 1989.

How to use Snow Queen Oakleaf Hydrangea in the landscape?

Snow Queen Hydrangea is an improved selection of Oakleaf Hydrangea which is native to the moist woods of eastern north America. This form was selected for its pure white flowers held above the foliage, its more compact form and its exceptional fall color. In fall, the foliage of Snow Queen turn to shades of red and purple, a perfect compliment to the bright leaves of the trees and their fantastic fall color. The beautiful conical flower heads come in to full bloom as pure white flower heads and age through different phases of pink. If left on through winter they add great interest to the landscape.
