Notes:

My husband planted this bush about 15 years ago. It was one of those free gifts from one of those nature society groups. Anyway, it has grown 10 fold since and every mid August, it comes out with these beautiful white blossoms that attract all the bees and other nectar seeking creatures in the area. A lovely bush, but for the life of us, we don’t know what it is. Can you identify it??

    Looks like a variety of hydrangea. I wish I could be more specific but, that just about does it on my hydrangea expertise. Now you might feel as if you’ve been abandoned in the proverbial chicken wire canoe but fear not oh fretful ones, here is everything I ever wanted to know about hydrangeas: http://www.provenwinners.com/learn/miscellaneous/hydrangea-glossary

    My sister has one just like this. When she planted it (about 15 Years ago) the label said Lacecap. Doesn’t look like any lacecap hydrangea I have ever seen, but it is a beautiful bush. She also planted one that said oakleaf from the same vendor that looks nothing like an oakleaf hydrangea. Guess we are not the only ones that gets things wrong :)

    It could be Hydrangea paniculata ‘Tardiva’, the blooming time and leaf shape is right.
