Alice oakleaf hydrangea, selected from parents native to the southeast United States, is a deciduous shrub with lobed leaves that resemble oak leaves. The flowers of the oakleaf hydrangea, borne on large, upright panicles, are white and turn to purplish-pink in fall. The glossy, deep-green leaves in spring and summer give way to burgundy-red fall color. The oakleaf hydrangea is a shrub with four seasons of interest, unique leaves, interesting flowers, fall color, cinnamon-brown peeling bark, and handsome foliage in summer and fall. Plant it in the shrub border or in a lightly wooded area.
