Positive lmelling On Dec 2, 2004, lmelling from Ithaca, NY (Zone 5b) wrote:

From the "Encyclopedia of Hydrangeas," (Van Gelderen -2004), " A large and robust shrub up to 5'. The corymbs are globular and frilly looking. The sepals open unevenly, from cream through pale blue to blue. Of course this is not the case in alkaline soil. This cultivar is a branch sport of the well-known 'Madame Emile Mouillere', but despite its beauty is rarely available in the trade. According to an anecdote, the late Princess Margaret of England called her sister, Queen Elizabeth, Frillibet in her childhood. Selected by Michael Haworth-Booth in the 1950s (UK)."

Blooms early and lasts well into fall. Sepals flip upside down late in the season. No hardiness zone noted.
