Comments: A lacecap hydrangea with garden interest for three season. In spring it has nice foliage and the sterile florets are white to light pink, in late spring and summer the florets turn a burgundy-rose as they mature and in fall the leaves become a reddish-purple. Mildew resistance is another hallmark of this selection.
