|My daughter gave me this beauty 3-5 years ago for Mothers Day. I planted it in the garden only to watch it grow full of leaves, year after year, but no flowers. After a sad Google, I decided it must be one of those hothouse shrubs that dies back each year, and will never produce flowers. This May, I went around with a shovel to put it out of its misery, and lo and behold--flower buds!|
It ended up producing the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen on a hydrangea. Can anyone tell me the type I have? I want more!
Northern Virginia, USA. No amendments to soil--just fall leaves.

|Welcome to NGA, Amy! Your patience has been rewarded just when you almost gave up hope!|
If you're looking for a name, it may be a futile search since so many lacecaps are on the market. Enjoy it!

|Thank you Perl!|
I was afraid that was the anwer. After four years or so, this baby started producing blooms bigger than a dinner plate. Go figure?

|Welcome to NGA Amy! That is a really striking hydrangea - I would love to have one of those!|
More costumes, less uniforms!
