Variegated Lacecap Hydrangea
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Mariesii Variegata'
This is a nice Hydrangea with a white margin around the leaves. It gets from 4 to 6 feet tall and is hardy to USDA Zone 6. The flower buds seem to be a little more tender but if the winter isn’t too bad than you get a beautiful show. I have noticed that this plant can revert to all green so you have to keep an eye on it.
If I were getting one or two types of Hydrangeas this probably wouldn’t be one of them. However it does have place in a larger Hydrangea collection for its unusual foliage and flowers.
