As with most Oakleaf Hydrangeas, they prefer soil rich in organic matter, that is well drained in full to part sun. Mulch for summer months to prevent soil moisture evaporation. This little gem will grow best in partially shaded areas. Leaves are a yellow to green shade or chartreuse. Wonderful showy foliage that will brighten up any landscape.
