Queen of Hearts Oakleaf Hydrangea is a mounding deciduous shrub with large oak-like leaves that turn mahogany red in fall.  Its upright panicles held above the foliage bloom white and slowly mature to deep pink in summer attracting pollinators.  Best bloom in partial sun and rich, moist well-drained soils.  

Hydrangea quercifolia is one of the species of hydrangea that acts as a pollenizer, attracting a large number of bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.  Songbirds eat the seeds and use the plant to nest.
