Climbing Hydrangea

Climbing Hydrangea

White Lacecap Blooms, Shaggy Brown Bark, Glossy Foliage


"There is NO better climbing vine!" according to Donald Wyman, author of Wyman's Gardening encyclopedia. Try this one at home and we are sure you will be echoing those sentiments.This climbing form of the beloved Hydrangea is easy to grow and very lovely, covering ground vertically or horizontally with no tying or staking from you! Truly spectacular when in flower in midsummer, it climbs without support on walls, arbors, or trees, reaching 60 to 80 feet.

The glossy, deep green foliage is an elegant touch from spring until fall. Great clouds of lacecap flowers are beautiful in early summer. The shaggy, cinnamon-colored bark is striking and ornamental in winter. Ideal to grow up large trees, or on large brick walls facing north or east. 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.

Climbing Hydrangea grows best in sun or partial shade and prefers moist soil. Zones 4-8.

Great plant, just a little slow to take off

I love the way this climbing hydrangea WILL eventually look. I have a very old soul, planted many years ago and love it, so when I bought a new place, I wanted to duplicate this look. I purchased one about a year ago, it made the winter, securely mulched in for the awful winter we had here in NC, and it's putting out greenery everywhere now but sure has not reached the climber stage yet... I am very patient, so I'll watch the little one grow :D)
