A couple of years ago we bought a hydrangea quercifolia.
The RHS describe this plant as "a spreading deciduous shrub with handsome, large, deeply lobed leaves turning red and purple in autumn".
For the two winters that we have had this plant it has refused to conform and the leaves have resolutely remained green throughout winter.
I was also warned not to expect any flowers for a few years until the plant settled in but ours flowered in its first year.
Is our plant just being contrary or has anyone else noticed this deviation from the script in their garden? Or have you any other deviant plants?
