From the source "Encyclopedia of Hydrangeas" C.J. and D.M. Van Gelderen (2004 - Timber Press): A huge shrub up to 6.5 feet tall in sheltered places. Flowerheads are small, 4"-6" across. Ray flowers are arranged irregularly in one ring. the florets are pure white, maturing light pink. Sepals elongated and dentate. Looks similar to and can be confused with 'Grayswood'. Origin Japanese, before 1940. Introduced by L. de Rothschild.
