The Gatsby Moon® Hydrangea is a Proven Winners ColorChoice® oakleaf hydrangea. The extra large shrub will grow 6 to 8 feet wide and tall! The panicle flowers start out creamy white, then turn more lime green towards the end of summer and into fall. The blooms last most of summer, which is a really nice trait of this bush.

The leaves are oak shaped like other quercifolia hydrangeas, and green in color throughout the summer. In the fall the foliage turns into a dark red color that provides late season interest.

These shrubs are also native to North America, which is beneficial because the shrubs will require less maintenance, and will not be invasive. Native plants are also generally better for wildlife, especially pollinators.

Gatsby Moon Hydrangea Care

Be sure to plant these in well-drained soil. It is best to grow these in a location that receives morning sunlight, but afternoon shade. Especially in southern locations like zones 8 and 9. If the shrub does get full-sun (sunlight over 8 hours a day), be sure to provide extra moisture and consider adding mulch as well to help retain that moisture. Some extra watering might be necessary during hot summer days and periods of drought. You can tell when the plant is getting thirsty when the leaves start to wilt.

If you need to prune the Gatsby Moon Hydrangea, be sure to prune in mid-summer after the plant has bloomed. Do not prune in late fall or in winter, as this shrub blooms on old wood. So you will run the risk of cutting off next year’s blooms if you do prune at the wrong time.

Fertilize using tree and shrub slow-release fertilizer in early spring. Use directions as indicated on the bottle.

Gatsby Moon Hydrangea Spacing

Space these large shrubs at least 8 feet apart, center on center. If you would like to create a privacy hedge, you can plant 6 feet apart, center on center. These shrubs are so large, that only very large garden planters can hold these shrubs.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

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. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

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.
