I planted an Oakleaf Hydrangea in my front yard 20 years ago - it’s huge now. We’re supposed to be to far north for them, but mine is surviving. In fact, I took a baby root off of it, and started a new plant, and now have a second Oakleaf right next to the mother plant.
@DelbertYoung Del they have come a long way with hydrangeas. Not only do they survive far north of me, they have so many varieties that love full sun, like 6 to 8 hours? This is not your mothers hydrangea anymore, don’t you just love it?
