Hydrangea quercifolia is native to the southeastern U.S. (and widely cultivated throughout the region). This shrub is naturally found in forests and disturbed areas, and grows well in full sun to part-shade. It prefers rich, moist soils, but is drought resistant once established. Large clusters of white flowers bloom in the late-spring, which attract pollinators. Hydrangea quercifolia is a great specimen plant in a yard.
