Bold midsummer flowers and handsome peeling bark in winter!
Its white flowers, rich green foliage, striking exfoliating bark, and shrub-like growth create all-season interest. This plant needs no support to grow upward ? so you don't have to worry about tying the vine! Just give it a wall, arbor, or other structure to grow against, and up it goes!
Also effective as a groundcover, Climbing Hydrangea is easy, carefree, and very long-lived. It can be somewhat slow to establish, but once settled in, it makes excellent growth each year. Zones 4-8.
