General Plant Care:    Hydrangeas are easy-care shrubs that prefer to be planted in partial or afternoon shade. Hydrangeas will wilt in afternoon heat, but typically recover in morning. Consider planting your hydrangea in a spot where they get afternoon shade or watering more frequently during hot spells.
General Planting Tips:    Choose a site suited to your plant's light, soil, and space needs. Dig a hole twice as wide but no deeper than the container. Remove plant from container and loosen roots slightly. Place the plant in the hole. If using slow-release (coated) fertilizer, you may add it according to package directions at this time. Add soil back to the hole, ensuring the top of the soil from the container is even with the surrounding soil. Water well, and add more soil if needed. Add 2-3 inches of mulch around plant, taking care to keep away from stem or trunk. See our FAQ page for more details on Mulching.
General Fertilizing Tips:    Once in spring with a slow-release fertilizer recommended for this plant (shrub, tree) at a rate according to package directions.
General Pruning suggestions:    Oakleaf hydrangeas are a beautiful native American shrub adapted to the woodlands, and do not typically need pruning. They bloom on old wood, so any needed pruning should be done after flowering in late spring. If flowers are allowed to remain on the plant, they will age to a lovely rose-brown. If the natural size of oakleaf hydrangeas are too large for your site, consider a dwarf variety like ‘Munchkin’ or ‘PeeWee’.
Bloom Tips:    Remove flower stalks after blooms have faded
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5a to 8b
