a friend got a new house..in Michigan... this is growing and blooming there now... I don't recognize it and cannot find an example of it... everyone says it's a lacecap hydrangea, but note the leaf... that's a strange one!... do any of you have a name for this one?...I know someone out there must have one to match!!... my thanks in advance!

Confusing plant... the flowers are clearly lacecap hydrangea, but the foliage isn't, and looks quite a lot like oakleaf. Possibly an old hybrid.
