Species recently introduced from Vietnam and hardiness not known but warmer zone 8 and above is safe. Well worth taking a chance on as the lacecap flowers have that little sumpin' sumpin' that made this the staff favorite here. White sterile flowers surround fertile florets of pink to indigo depending on pH and clonal differences.
A Mexican self-clinging evergreen climber or if left unsupported, it develops arboreal stems which will support it as a large shrub. Grown this way it willsend out questing branches looking to climb but they are easy to nip off. Great for a north wall or Doug Fir. White lace caps in July.
A United States National Arboretum introduction of this intergeneric hybrid between Hydrangea and Dichroa. With recent molecular work lumping Dichroa in with Hydrangea, this makes sense that these would hybridize. Fine, dense heads of lavender-blue flowers on a small shrub. The USNA also holds Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy plants in their collection.
