This fast-growing, dense, rounded deciduous shrub reaches 4-6' tall and wide. Broad, large, lobed, dark green leaves are light underneath; leaves resemble oak leaf shape, thus its common name. During spring and summer, long panicles white flowers appear on exfoliating branches. Because it blooms on its old wood, the plant should not be pruned until after flowering. Its leaves turn a dark bronzy purple during the fall. The plant should receive sun to part shade and planted in moist, fertile, well draining soil. It does not tolerate frost and does best in an area protected from wind and fierce sun. May need extra summer water; mulch plant well. This shrub suckers; prune after flowering season. A beautiful plant when planted in mass for shrub borders in a woodland garden style.
