Hydrangea quercifolia 'Amethyst,' commonly known as 'Amethyst' oakleaf hydrangea, is a striking oakleaf hydrangea cultivar that is perfect for a variety of places in the home garden. Performing best in rich, well-drained soil in full to part sun areas, 'Amethyst' matures to a compact but not dwarf size of five to six feet tall and wide, making it ideal for hedges, mass plantings, and foundation planting. From June to July, this cultivar is noted for its striking cone-shaped flower panicles that emerge white and quickly mature to a luscious wine-red color. Flowers are highly attractive to pollinators, and 'Amethyst' gains multi-season appeal with the purple-red hues of its fall foliage.

After fall foliage has come and gone, coarse mature stems exfoliate to reveal an attractive, chocolate brown inner bark, which adds eye-catching appeal to the winter landscape as well. This cultivar's compact form works in smaller landscapes and is useful for mass planting, hedges or borders, and with year-round aesthetic appeal, 'Ruby Slippers' makes an excellent addition to any space in the landscape.
