Red Rhapsody® False Hydrangea Vine

Schizophragma elliptifolium 'MonLaBaHe'

SKU
07576
This extremely rare selection makes a dramatic statement by virtue of its foliage alone. Varnished-red new growth is stunning in spring, and large, lacecap-like cream-colored flowers are beautiful in contrast. Self-clinging stems will gently climb a fence, arbor, or large tree trunk, creating a handsome display in a shaded garden setting. Deciduous.

Botanical Pronunciationski-zo-FRAG-muh
LoreThe 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.

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.
