My Lacecap Hydrangea is Starting

The Lacecap hydgrangea buds here at my cottage are just beginning to open. I took this photo with my iPhone yesterday.
I think my variety is Taube or maybe Lemon Wave based on the photos on this website. I'll have to wait a little longer to find out. I didn't buy this plant that I've had for at least 5 years, I dug it from a friend's yard and it is thriving. I think I should try to root a cutting and plant one in the front too. This one is in the back in a corner under my balcony where it gets the perfect combination of sun and shade.

I have a climbing hydrangea on the back of my garden shed, it was there for 8 or more years without bloom. Then 3 years ago we pulled it all off to re-stain the shed and stapled it back up.....and the past 2 years it has finally bloomed. This year, it's incredible.

friendandfaux -- I didn't know there was a climbing hydrangea. I'm glad yours finally bloomed. I have heard similar tales about wisteria that would not bloom but did after the owners tried to dig it up. Have a great weekend.
