Is this a Tardiva Hydrangea tree?

I bought a PG hydrangea tree on sale at a big box store. The description said white PG tree.

What I received was not a Grandiflora like I was expecting but rather a lacecap style with fiertile upright growth including the flowers. It did get a later start because of its shady location and the drought in July which is also a characteristic of Tardiva. The flowers are not all turning pink from the bottom up like Pink Diamond. Is there any way to tell for sure by the leaves and/or flower in the attached photo is a Tardiva?
