Starry Double Blooms!

This Oakleaf Hydrangea sets out coveted double blooms with pointed white petals.
Plant Patent Applied For. Cultivar Name: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Doughill'.

Gatsby's Star™ puts out enchanting white double blooms, right at eye level! This Oakleaf Hydrangea has a compact habit, with blooms that are anything but! 12 inches long (or more), these panicles of double blooms make a very impressive show, especially in groups, where they appear to create a whole country night sky's worth of stars.

The moderate size of Gatsby's Star™ also makes it a gorgeous addition to the back of the border or to your home's foundation. The tasteful white blooms will complement almost any other plant in the landscape, making this Hydrangea exceptionally versatile. And the whimsical blooms are the perfect touch in a woodland garden! If you don't have 5 to 6 feet of space for Gatsby's Star™ to reach its full height, you can prune it to keep it tidy and (even) more compact.

This native blooms in midsummer, but its flowers remain striking well into cool weather. The blooms arise on new wood, so it is best to prune in late fall or early spring. In the fall the green foliage and white blooms both take on a burgundy tinge for a flush of late-season interest.

Gatsby's Star™ is adaptable, working well with most soils, as long as it is well-drained and gets some sun. In the south it prefers some shade, and in the north it likes full sun and some shelter from the chilliest winds. The enormous white blooms are resolute, appearing reliably each year regardless of climate, pruning, or soil pH! Zones 5 to 9.
