I have a lacecap hydrangea purchased at my local Lowe's. I've had it home in Northern California for two to three months. I have on the patio in filtered shade. I get white spots Can anyone help?

Looks like calcium build up from water to me. It's best to water the soil while avoiding watering the leaves.

Thank you Carol, I have been watering the leaves, I'll stop and water the root ball instead. Thank you very much.

If you water the leaves for long enough periods of time, that can promote powdery mildew or cercospora leaf spots so I too agree that watering the soil is best. Watch out for Lowes (I am joking)... years ago, I bought there a mophead called Nikko Blue that had no blooms and I ended with an unnamed lacecap. Ha! Turns out I liked it even better.
