In full bloom, this Hydrangea is spectacular. Plants appear layered with flat clusters in muted tones of white and blue. The showy lacecaps are large and white, forming a bright circle around the inner blue clusters. Plants under our Magnolia tree and those in less shade fare well. 'Veitchii' is a strong, reliable bloomer, with dark green foliage that beautifully offsets the gleaming white blooms. Considered one of the best to include in classic shade gardens.
