    Looks like some type of Hydrangea macrophylla normalis.

    Good thought, Lulu - it could be Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Mariesii Perfecta’ or Hydrangea Villosa

    I think you could be right about 'villosa' - the leaves are longer and feltier, which it looks like in your picture..

    Hydrangea aspera Villosa Group has white outer sterile florets while those in your picture appear to be blue/purple. It is probably therefore straight Hydrangea aspera. Are the leaves rough to the touch, not sure from your picture?

    I think you're right - I'm told the leaves are rough. Luckily my friend will let me take a cutting, so identifying it isn't as crucial as I thought.

    is it about 6 feet tall and straggly

    It is about 6 feet but bushy rather than straggly
