Good afternoon! Attached are two pictures of a ‘bush’ plant that’s been growing near a little stream in our backyard. This year it presented itself with the prettiest flower of purple and white. Can you tell me what the name of this plant is??

    Lucky you! Looks like a very pretty lacecap hydrangea variety. Check out this link http://www.hydrangeashydrangeas.com/lacecaps.html

    Looks like some type of hydrangea to me. Maybe a ‘wild’ one? I’ll be watching this post to find out for certain.

    It’s a lacecap hydrangea. I paid a lot for one about 15 years ago when they were fairly new on the market. Love it!

    Thank you Rita and lprutsman. Now I have to figure out how to care for it as it seems to be growing quite bushy and out of control.

    Any suggestions? While I wait I shall parooz through the site for information.

    Thanks again.

    We have a white-flowering lacecap hydrangea “tree” on our property, near the creek.. I say tree because it is prob 15 feet tall. Is this unusual?
