Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Sikes Dwarf’ is a smaller version of the much loved Oakleaf hydrangea with multiple white, cone shaped flowerheads and burgundy fall foliage. This species is about half the size of most hydrangeas with a height and width of only 2 – 4 feet, making it perfect for smaller gardens and contained areas or even as a small hedge. It makes a great plant for container gardening as it add color and texture to any patio or porch. Also loved as a cut flower to enjoy inside the home.
The white cone-shaped flowers emerge in May until July, turning a reddish-pink as they mature. The oak shaped leaves take on rich purple-red tones in fall. During the winter, the “paper-like” peeling bark adds interest.
Hardy in zones 5 – 9, this unique plant prefers full sun to part shade and like well drained, moist soil. A low maintenance shrub and one to enjoy for many years.
