This is a great plant but it is a lacecap and the photo that shows here is not. I will try to get a good photo of mine and load it.

From the sources "Hydrangeas for American Gardens," by Michael A. Dirr (2004), and "Encyclopedia of Hydrangeas" C.J. and D.M. Van Gelderen (2004 - Timber Press):

A compact plant. The flowers are arranged in circles of sterile pale pink sepals. The corymbs are somewhat saucer shaped, later flattened; substantial heads. After a few weeks the heads turn greenish, and three weeks later change again to dark red, thus stays attractive for a long time. Very suitable as a pot plant. Dirr reports in his book that this plant is susceptible to mildew. Trademarked under the name HOVARIA. Bred by K. and W. Hofstede, Netherlands, in 1994.
