SOLVED: Hanging Cluster of Flowers?

Richmond, VA

Always see this when walking the dog. Clusters of white hanging flowers with five-pointed leaves. What is it?

Compare with Hydrangea quercifolia.

Sure does look like an oakleaf hydrangea. Thanks!

Yes, and that's the double-flowered one: Hydrangea quercifolia Snowflake™

Powder Springs, GA(Zone 7b)

ViburnumValley definitely has it right. The only double flowering oakleaf hydrangea until recently (I think Proven Winners came out with the Gatsby series - check Gatsby Star for their double flowering oakleaf). There are some others but I don't trust the sellers on those.

Make sure you buy it in bloom if you want 'Snowflake'. Slower growing than other oakleaf hydrangeas but worth it.

Here is a picture of mine from last summer.
