name that plant!

On my walk to school I pass several of these plants and keep wondering what exactly they are. They look to be related to hydrangea, but the flowers are flatter, and have two distinct parts. Anyone know?

  1. i thought it looked like a hydrangea, but with kooky flowers. but turns out we were both right – apparently there are different species of hydrangea, and this one falls into the “Lacecap” variety. From these pictures, I’m pretty sure it’s the Veitchii variety.
