From manic hybridizer Darrell Probst comes this herbaceous Asian Hydrangea relative.  Softer blue than D. caerulea but with leaves showing a distinct Camel Toe cleft attesting to D. bifida affinity.  (Had a friend who was Wardrobe Mistress for PNW Ballet and Camel Toes were her bane)  The fertile flowers on this are a study in intricacy and worth bending over for.  I meant that the plant is short and not because it is 16 bucks!  Sheesh.  Can't believe you were thinking that.  This likes some light shade a good soil that doesn't dry but drains.
