Gift #468: Oak Leaf Hydrangeas

Oak leaf hydrangeas are one of those plants that reach a zenith of glory in the autumn.  As the colors start to deepen, the leaves become show-stoppers in a way more magnificent than the flowers were in spring.  In fact, the dried brown flowers are a perfect counterpart to the brilliant red of the foliage.  At Spring Mill, oak leaf hydrangeas were generously planted around the lodge and parking lots.  And I even found quite a few along the trails….someone else in charge of planting must love hydrangeas too.  They’re beautiful year round and I’m hoping to add some to the garden this coming spring.  These hydrangeas are just starting to turn, and in the warm sun, they practically seemed to glow.
