Developed by M. A. Dirr (University of Georgia). A cross of Hydrangea macrophylla 'Veitchii' (an old Japanese lacecap cultivar) and Hydrangea macrophylla 'Bailmer' Endless Summer® The Original. Flowers on old and new wood. A white-flowered mophead that ages to pink, dark green leaves. It also has an increased resistance to mildew. This was the second hydrangea released under the Endless Summer® trademark (PP17169, 2006).
