Gatsby Star® Oakleaf hydrangea Hydrangea quercifolia
- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
It's got star power!
Doubled blooms are similar to those of 'Snowflake', but the individual petals are pointed instead of rounded. The result is a beautiful, lacy panicle - and a very showy plant. It's a fun way to add some unexpected drama to woodland gardens.Fall InterestNative to North America

Gatsby Star didn't bloom after I got it. It did have pretty fall color but didn't survive the infamous cold snap this winter.Did not survive or bloom, Oklahoma, United States, 24 weeks ago
This is by far the most beautiful oak leaf I have ever grown. I get compliments on it constantly, a must-have for hydrangea enthusiasts!Laura Hill, Alabama, United States, 7 years ago
Beautiful, has the same bloom form as Snowflake, but sepals are pointed. Very white, likes shade and good drainage.Brenda Hill, Alabama, United States, 8 years ago
