Oakleaf Hydrangea

If, in the next few months, you come across a gardening DVD in which you hear Pat Bowen (Master Gardener - Cherokee County, Georgia) speak about the oakleaf hydrangeas in her garden, you will see a specimen she is discussing, as well as a stem cutting with a flower that has finished blooming and is now a very attractive dried flowerhead.

That's this one!

Not a "twin" from the same shrub, or a cutting from another oakleaf hydrangea, but the exact same material she has in her hands in the DVD. I'm determined to make this cutting famous! :-) For now, and until its appeal disappears, it keeps company with a bouquet of mint on a side table in my dining room.
