Design IdeasThis 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.
