Munchkin Oakleaf Hydrangea
Hydrangea quercifolia 'Munchkin'
This exciting U.S. National Arboretum introduction offers a profusion of large, 6-1/2 inch long flower clusters in summer, showcased against dark green, deeply lobed oak like leaves. Blossoms open white, age to pink, and are robust, remaining upright even after heavy rains. Foliage turns a brilliant mahogany in fall. Exceptional compact form and dense plant habit make it ideally suited for small landscapes. Stunning in mass plantings, hedges and in mixed borders.
