Taiping Shan Evergreen Climbing Hydrangea

Hydrangea integrifolia 'Taiping Shan'

This elegant climber will beautifully cover vertical surfaces with glossy evergreen leaves, the vigorous stems clinging by means of aerial roots. New foliage is tinted bronze, held by red petioles. Mature plants produce showy, white, lace-cap blooms. Perfect for a north facing wall or cloaking the bare trunks of tall evergreen trees.

Provide humus-rich, well-drained soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Best in cool, moist settings; apply a layer of mulch to conserve moisture, avoiding the trunk. Provide sturdy support for aerial roots to cling and climb, or allow to sprawl.
