Positive lmelling On Dec 3, 2004, lmelling from Ithaca, NY (Zone 5b) wrote:

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):

These two sources disagree on the height of this shrub, one calling it 3.5' - 5' and the other saying 4'-6'. They do agree that the flowerheads are large and pure white. Sepals are sharply serrate. Single florets have a small blue eye. The plant needs some shade for good results. The flowers become green tinted with red when ready to dry and are delicate. This is not a cold hardy plant but no zone reference was given.

AKA: 'Petite Soeur Therese de l'Enfant Jesus'.
