The Jetstream Hydrangea is a vast improvement on traditional Oakleaf Hydrangeas. Jetstream has the large oak-leaf shaped foliage you would expect from other oak leaf Hydrangeas, but this Hydrangea also has a dense, compact, and sturdy growth habit that keeps the plant from flopping over when the blooms get big and heavy.
In mid-spring, to early summer the blooms begin to develop they emerge as large lime green conical buds that develop into pure white blooms. As the blooms age in fall they will blush pink then fade to deep rosy-pink, and at the same time, the leaves of the Jetstream will come alive changing to orange-scarlet. As this Hydrangea goes dormant the large blooms will dry out to a tan-brown which can provide added interest in the winter landscape.
When planting the Jetstream mix in a slightly acidic well-drained garden soil with your native soil and select an area that will receive full to part sun. In spring before your hydrangea comes out of dormancy we recommend using a slow-release slightly acidic granular fertilizer to keep your Hydrangea performing its best year after year!
