I love the oakleaf hydrangeas. I have 'Snow Queen'. I think they are beautiful in all seasons.
I love them too. My parents had a gigantic one, and I want mine to grow that large too. This is an unnamed variety I got from a local grower, but her plants are always excellent for this area, even though she doesn't keep up with their names. Actually I think she propagates a lot of her plants and probably never knew the variety or cultivar name in the first place--just that it does well here. But it doesn't matter because I bought this one in bloom and it was already bulging out of the pot, and once I planted it, it immediately grew to over five feet tall, so I know it is vigorous and will do well here.
