Gardeners' Notes:

Positive gradyh12 On Nov 18, 2012, gradyh12 from Saraland, AL wrote:

Mrs. Ellen Huff made this selection while living in Warner-Robbins, GA. She brought it with her to Satsuma, AL and proceeded to propagate it with dormant wood cuttings under her azaleas over winter. The bloom time is long and the plant is very durable and hardy.

I've had 'Ellen Huff' in the ground for a couple of seasons. The flower panicles are huge and bright white, and the foliage is large and dark green. It's blooming very well in full shade. I live in an area where there are tons of wild Oakleaf Hydrangeas, and it's easy to see why this one is considered to be an outstanding selection.

In "Hydrangeas for American Gardens," by Michael A. Dirr (2004), it says Vigorous selection from Gulf Coast with good heat tolerance. Flowers large with a mix of showy sepals and fertile flowers.
