The Modern Southern Garden

The Profile

Oakleaf Hydrangeas

 The modern southern garden should always include Oakleaf Hydrangeas. Originally born & bred in our region, these deciduous shrubs are prized for their big, stately blooms. They are fast growing plants that prefer a bit of morning sun & shady afternoons. Oakleaf Hydrangeas put on a good show when in bloom but continue to awe throughout the growing season with their timeless foliage. Although the oak-like leaves emerge green in the spring, they change colors anywhere from pink to purple to crimson in the fall. Learn how these lovely flowers can spruce up entertaining spaces quickly.

How To Navigate Oakleaf Hydrangeas

Beautiful flower arrangements should change with the seasons so begin by choosing items currently in bloom. Savvy southerners know to have distinctive, indigenous garden varieties planted around their outdoor space that can be used for a number of occasions. These arrangements are designed to be effortless & fast to prepare since entertaining involves many fine details as the event draws closer. Start by choosing a selection of simple beverage glasses & vases with clean lines to really allow bouquets to shine. Hydrangeas are always a good choice to use when entertaining as just a few stems are needed to really make spaces shine.

 Oakleaf Hydrangea blooms make beautiful arrangements with impact & just a few stems can be used to create small bursts of sunshine throughout spaces. Use them for entertaining or just to simply spruce up your home. Choose glasses with clean lines. Beverage glasses or clear vases work particularly well. Snip & gather blooms early in the morning. Invert the flowers & give them a little shake to remove any tiny garden creatures. Once indoors, remove any large leaves that may over shadow the blooms when using them in petite arrangements. Snip the stems low enough so that the blooms rest on the lip of the glass. Tuck in a few additional garden favorites such as Southern Shield Fern & Hostas to add variety to them. Use the flowers throughout entertaining spaces & around your home on side tables, vanities & kitchen islands.
