Everyone who visits our gardens has begged us to propagate this showy white-edged form of the lacecap Hydrangea macrophylla. We originally received this as Hydrangea macrophylla 'Mariesii Variegata', but the correct name seems to be 'Maculata'. The summer-produced flower heads are composed of a row of the sterile florets around the large central flower cluster. The lacecap flowers are blue in acidic soil and pink in alkaline areas. When winter temperatures drop below 10 degrees F, the bloom buds may be killed...that's okay, though, since the foliage is so wonderful! Expect a 3' tall x 5' wide clump at maturity.
