Species - macrophylla – Lacecaps

Hydrangea macrophylla is native of China, Korea, and the Himalayas.  The original form; H.macrophylla var.normalis has broad leaves and lacecap flower heads with mostly small fertile florets surrounded by a few of the larger sterile florets. However, intensive breeding programs soon produced improved lacecap cultivars with many more and larger sterile florets and in a wider range of hues.
