Hortense feuille de chêne, Hydrangea quercifolia


Hortense feuille de chêne, Hydrangea quercifolia

I'm Hortensia Happy! This is my, absolutely, favourite plant. The panicles of flowers are so elegant. I love the way the long branches arch and sway and the large leaves flutter in the breeze.

Which is why I can't get a photo which does it justice...

Have you tried Hydrnagea aspera Villosa Karen? I used to grow that one but it got too large! Dark and broody leaves and lovely pale violet flowers.
