The Gatsby Gal Hydrangea is a Proven Winners ColorChoice® oakleaf hydrangea shrub. This shrub has white panicle flowers that cover the plant from early summer to fall. This shrub is smaller than typical oakleaf hydrangeas, however it still gets to be 5 to 6 foot tall. The flowers turn from white to pink to wine-red by fall.

The plant blooms on old wood, like most hydrangea quercifolia (oakleaf). The leaves look like leaves from oak trees, hence the name. The panicle flowers protrude from the green foliage to create eye-catching pops of color.

Oakleaf hydrangeas have extra interest with their oak-shaped leaves that turn red in the fall, like a red maple tree. Also, the bark provides extra interest as well. Look closely and you can see if peel back similar to a birch tree.

Gatsby Gal Hydrangea Care

Oakleaf hydrangeas are hardier than most hydrangeas. These can grow from zones 5a to 9b. These need extra protection in the winter if possible. We recommend applying extra mulch to help protect the roots, as well as provide extra moisture retention. There are also other techniques you can do to help protect the branches. You can read more about it in our article about protecting hydrangeas in winter.

If you choose to prune the Gatsby Gal Hydrangea, do so after the first bloom in mid-summer. Otherwise, you can run the risk of cutting off flower buds for the following year. We recommend only pruning dead or sick branches and leaves.

These shrubs should be planted in well-drained soil to help prevent root rot. Plant these shrubs in a location with morning sun and afternoon shade if possible, especially in warmer areas like zones 8 and 9. Consider adding extra winter protection in zones 5 and 6.

Gatsby Gal Hydrangea Spacing

When planting, space the Fire Light Hydrangea 60 - 72 inches apart, center on center. To create an oakleaf hydrangea hedge, plant these 48 to 60 inches apart center on center. These can also be planted in a garden container to add height and color. Only use 1 per container. We also recommend planting these shrubs in the ground in colder climates in the fall, or bringing the container indoors for winter protection.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
