This beautiful lacecap Hydrangea is valued not only for its blooms, but also for its variegated green and white foliage. The flowers emerge in mid summer and will be pink or blue depending on soil acidity (more acidic = blue flowers). Pruning should be done after flowering, usually in August. This will allow enough time for the flower buds to form before the winter.
