A Taste of Honey

Looking stunning now is one of our favorite native shrubs, the golden leaf selection of Hydrangea quercifolia, named ‘Little Honey’. Our plant below is now 19 years old, and measures 4′ tall x 7′ wide. There are few woodland plants that can brighten a corner the way this gem can–and this is without the spikes of white flowers. Hardiness is Zone 5a-9a.

  1. With reference to your blog today about the size of Hydrangeas, my Little Honey is way over the size originally suggested. It is definitely not ” little”, being 8 ft. tall and 8 ft. wide.
    Nurseries say the sizes given are for a 10 year span. Experience tells me that I can expect at least 50% more in size after 10 years.
