We are so excited about this new Oakleaf. I am a huge Wizard of Oz fan and certainly height challenged and I love my Munchkin test plant. It is truly compact and is staying as such with no pruning. In five years, it?s just 3 feet tall and blooms every year. We want to thank the US National Arboretum breeding program in McMinnville TN (the Lollypop guild) for you diligent efforts and the opportunity to share your treasure. This is a seedling of Oakleaf Sikes Dwarf. It turns dark pink in the fall and has Oakleaf trademark red foliage to knock your socks off every September. (limited supply in 2012)

A low growing form of the oakleaf hydrangea. The white flowers are large as compared to the plant. Great colored fall foliage in November.
Description by: Garden World
Huge upward facing panicles of pink flowers in late summer that hold up against wind and rain. In fall the generous oak like leaves turn magnificant colors for fall. Full sun for best color but does well in most situations with moist soil.

This is a fantastic new introduction from the United States National Arboretum. Munchkin is small and compact with strong flower inflorescences that are held stiffly upright over the handsome leathery oak shaped leaves. Flowers emerge white in early summer and gradually fade to pink as the season progresses. Fall color is outstanding?primarily in dark reds and maroons. Munchkin was developed in 1997 from seedlings of ?Sikes Dwarf Oakleaf Hydrangea? as part of the USNA?s shrub breeding program. Eventually matures at 3 foot tall and 4.5 foot wide.
