Zoom In Photo:

Notes:
Oakleaf hydrangea is a slow growing shrub of great beauty and one of the few hydrangeas not native to Asia in this case hailing from the southeastern US. 'Alice' is noted for its large, arching flower panicles and disease-free foliage that offers superior fall colour in purples and reds. The conical white panicles produced in late spring grace the plants all summer and tinge pink as they age. Drought tolerant.
