Seemed appropriate since we got about 2 feet of snow on the day I edited this.

They look beautiful in this banner. I wasn't familiar with the type, so searched it in the database. Is this the one?

Thanks, guys! Its fun to see the banner!
@arctangent - yes, that is it. It is a long blooming hydrangea because of how the sepals grow on themselves. No fragrance though and it's sterile so no bee activity.

Neat banner, Loretta! So the white "flowers" are actually sepals? (I haven't grown hydrangea, so don't know much about them).

Maybe the correct term is sterile florets. But i saw both labels.
