    I never tried H. seratta. We don’t have much luck with hydrangea in general but neighbor with a huge, unknown variety neglects the hell out of his and it’s covered in blooms! I usually cover my variegated lace cap hydrangea with burlap in late winter. Otherwise, we won’t get any blooms due to frost.

      I would try seratta. I'm almost completely done with H. mac. in TN. So much space and so little reward.

    Totally agree about H. macrophylla. Removed all mine from the landscaped beds, to the natural area, where I will ignore them (& they will probably thrive :-) ). Replaced (H. macrophylla) with many varieties of H. quercifolia and so hoping they do well here in now zone 8a.

      I love H. quercifolia - I think there is a place for one in almost any landscape.
