Jetstream™ Oakleaf Hydrangea is best grown in organically rich, well-drained soils. Not particular on soil type, just as long as it doesn't dry out for too long or sit in water at any time.
Cooler zones allow Oakleaf Hydrangea to thrive in full sun while in warmer climates these need to be grown in part shade or afternoon shade.
Doing best in consistently moist soils, Hydrangea appreciates a generous layer of mulch which helps retain soil moisture, keep the roots cool in the heat and insulated in winter.
Blooming on old wood, only prune if necessary right after flowering to prevent removing the next flush of flowers. Winter damage may be pruned off in late winter or very early spring.
Hardy in USDA Zone 5 through 9, newly established plants require some protection from the drying, northern winds in winter.
