Oakleaf ... yellow and green leaves

My oakleaf hydrangea in the front of the house has completely leafed out, although it doesn't appear to be as large as in years past. It's even already started forming flowers and it looks like it might be a good show this year.

But I also noticed that the leaves on the underside are way more green than the leaves exposed -- which are more yellowish. I don't think I noticed this before...

I always thought that yellowing leaves meant chlorosis or something... but then, wouldn't the entire plant be affected??

I wonder if it's doing that because the outer leaves are getting more light. I really don't know as I haven't seen that on mine. I'll have to go check it.
