Oak Leaf Hydrangea ‘Pee Wee’

This cultivar is a dwarf variety of oak leaf hydrangea.  Pee-Wee features white flowers that fade to pink, beautiful burgundy fall foliage and has a cinnamon-colored bark in the winter. Makes a beautiful specimen or foundation plant in a border or group planting.

This variety grows to about 4′ tall x 3′ wide, which is quite smaller than the species which can reach 10′ x 10′.  Oak leaf hydrangeas prefer partial sun to full sun, and a well drained soil. 

The beautiful blooms are present in late spring and early summer, and the fall color is spectacular!  It is a beautiful plant throughout the year.
