Hydrangea - Oakleaf hydrangea Gatsby Pink®

Hydrangea quercifolia 'JoAnn'

Gatsby Pink is an oakleaf hydrangea with glorious blooms throughout the season. Flowers are pure white, prior to the transformation to deep pink. Color is retained all season long. Foliage is dark green and puts on an exquisite mahogany-red show in fall. Rather shade tolerant, however you'll find the color is best with daily sun. Because it blooms on old wood, judiciously prune selectively if needed. Perfect for informal borders or woodland gardens. Brilliant cut flowers, or dried for year-long arrangements. Attracts pollinators. Salt tolerant.

Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plant and flourish!

    Will a Oak leaf Hydrangea do well if planted on the west side in a protected area?

    Yes, provided you are in the planting zone they are suited for zones 5-9. It would be a fine place to put the hydrangea. Here are some additional care tips for the hydrangea.

    Oakleaf hydrangea blooms on old wood, so it is generally best to avoid any kind of regular pruning or trimming. May be pruned selectively as needed to develop a more striking habit.

    Oakleaf hydrangeas are perhaps the most shade-tolerant hydrangea, though blooming and fall color are best with at least some sun each day. They bloom on old wood and exhibit better bud hardiness than other old wood bloomers.

    is this a tree or a shrub? how wide and tall does it spread?

    The Oak leaf hydrangea will be 6-8' at mature height and width. It is considered a shrub not a tree.

Soil Best in moist, well-drained soil, but quite adaptable to any site except excessively wet ones.

These plants perform far better in the landscape than in the container, so don't be put off by a plant that looks less than enticing in its pot. It will redeem itself rapidly once planted in the ground.
