Both viburnums and hydrangeas can have either mophead or lacecap style flowers. Mophead flowers have a majority of showy sterile florets for a big, snowball effect; lacecap have more fertile florets for a starry effect. As plants in the wild tend to exhibit the lacecap variation naturally, lacecap forms generally look more at home in informal or woodland landscapes.Wabi-Sabi® Viburnum plicatum var. tomentosum 'SMVPTFD' USPP 29,553, Can PBRAF
