Congratulations to Jennifer for correctly identifying the Haas Halo, hydrangea arborescens. According to Mt Cuba Center, the native hydrangea, Haas Halo, is good in full sun or in shade, has oversized lacecap flower heads, and stands upright. It is a great combination of horticultural and pollinator value.
