CARE
Care Thrives in humus-rich, evenly moist soils. Provide support such as a trellis, arbor or large tree for self-adhering stems to climb. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Apply a general purpose fertilizer when new growth begins in spring.
HISTORY
Lore The genus name Schizophragma comes from the Greek for "divided wall", referring to the split walls of its fruiting structure. The cultivar name of this selection, 'LaBaHe', refers to the name of the village near where the original seed was collected. Schizophragma species are in the Hydrangea family. While their showy flower heads somewhat resemble that of lacecap hydrangeas and they are superficially close to the climbing hydrangeas, the flowers of Schizophragma can offer a greater presence to the shaded garden.
