Design Ideas This is the only Hydrangea that climbs and is so vigorous it can cloak a good-sized house in no time. Being deciduous, it shades walls in summer and lets the sun warm them during winter, thus helping to conserve energy. With its clinging habit, it needs no trellis and will extend up to a second story with ease. Works well as a cloak for fences or to increase an arbor's shade. An inexpensive cover for concrete retaining walls and freestanding barrier walls.
Flower Color White
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Euonymus (Euonymus); Coral Bells (Heuchera); Hosta (Hosta); Spreading Yew (Taxus); Boxwood (Buxus)
CARE
Care Thrives in enriched, fertile, well-drained soils. Tolerates full sun in cool climates with consistent moisture. Avoid hot, humid conditions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish extensive root system. Feed with general purpose fertilizer. Provide support for climbing stems. Prune annually to control size.
HISTORY
Lore The genus name Hydrangea comes from hydor meaning water and aggeion meaning vessel, referring to its cup-like capsular fruit. The specific epithet comes from the Greek word anomalas, which refers to the vine-like plant habit. The subspecies name is in reference to the long petioles of this plant.
