With Semmes Beauty Oakleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia 'Semmes Beauty'), you get pretty white clusters of flowers above a bonus — foliage shaped like oak leaves. The white flowers begin appearing in summer and then fade to a soft pink as they age. The leaves turn bronze in fall and the shrub is nearly as pretty in autumn as it is when flowering. Plant a group of these large shrubs to control weeds or for a colorful privacy border.
Of course, Semmes Beauty Oakleaf Hydrangea can stand alone as a featured plant in nearly any landscape. The hydrangea grows to almost 10 feet high and 20 feet wide, making a bold statement in the summer garden. The white flowers and green- to- bronze foliage make this hydrangea a pretty accent to yellows and purples in the garden. It's also a cold-hardy shrub, surviving winters down to zone 5 and taking heat up to zone 9.
Semmes Beauty Oakleaf Hydrangea Care
Plant Semmes Beauty Oakleaf Hydrangea in part sun to shade for best health and results. It needs average, regular watering. Fertilize your hydrangea in early spring and add some organic compost around the base of the plant to retain moisture. After the leaves turn color in fall, they will drop by winter. But new growth appears in early spring in most climates. Your hydrangea needs no pruning, but removing faded flowers promotes new growth.
Semmes Beauty Oakleaf Hydrangea Spacing
If planting a border or grouping of stunning Semmes Beauty Oakleaf Hydrangea shrubs, place them about 20 feet apart from center to center.
