Small but mighty, this savvy plant will have you falling head over heels every time you step into your garden. Sikes Dwarf Oakleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sike's Dwarf') offers the same appeal as its full-sized counterpart in a tidy compact form.
This plant is well known for giving its best flowers to you in the early summer. You can expect creamy white blooms to cover the plant in the well into mid-summer.
You can use this plant to bridge the gap between your gorgeous early spring bloomers and the bright mid to late-summer natives.
Plus, you can keep the pollinators interested in your garden while the next batch of flowers is getting ready. That means you'll have their fluttering brilliance from spring all the way until fall without interruption.
Pluck a few of the blooms to use as accents in your indoor bouquets. The flowers are the perfect size to compliment without taking over the entire creation.
The dark, deep green foliage is a delightful background for the bright blossoms but like the small-town characters in movies, it exists to do more. Namely, be a showstopping fall feature!
As the air turns crisp, the leaves turn a colorful array of purples, maroons, and bronzes. This deciduous shrub is determined to give your garden all it has to offer.

Try planting this dwarf bush on the sunny side of your house as a foundation plant. It'll soften the edges of your siding as it meets the ground.
You can also create an excellent edging around your beds or a clear break between the yard and the woods behind.
Use as the back row plant in perennial gardens. Its deep green leaves will be a great background for the bright flowers in front of it and give your planting beds some fall color as the rest of the plants prepare to rest through the winter.
Oakleaf hydrangeas are known to be the most shade tolerant of the hydrangeas so if you have a northeast corner in need of anchoring, this is the shrub for you.
We're here for an easy to care for white flower plant. Which is exactly what you're getting with this hydrangea. Who says you can't have it all?
Find a spot to plant in either full sun or partial shade. Like most other plants, it appreciates well-drained soil to grow its best.
Remember, these shrubs flower on last year's wood, so make sure to prune only after flowering is done for the season.
Every three to four years, go ahead and cut out the oldest, fattest stems. This leaves room for the younger, thinner stems to really strut their stuff and provide you with the best blooms.
We suggest adding a layer of mulch around the base of your plant. This protects the root systems from the extremes your weather offers up while also conserving water. The added aesthetic appeal is a bonus.
