Climbing Hydrangea Overview
Hydrangea viburnoides is a slow-growing, evergreen, climbing shrub that is self-clinging. It can grow as high as 8 metres, has narrow, leathery, elliptic leaves and produces masses of panicles of small, cream-white flowers from summer to autumn. Climbing Hydrangea will grow well in most light conditions including full sun, partial shade and full shade. Flowering is likely to be reduced in plants grown in shady conditions compared to those positioned in a sunny spot. It needs fertile, well-drained soil. Hydrangea viburnoides is a lovely and useful plant, ideal for growing in wall-side borders (facing any direction) and is particularly useful for shady walls and fences, where it is hard to grow other climbers. It is also low-maintenance and pest/disease-free. Climbing Hydrangea is also sold as Pileostegia viburnoides - a name it was first given in 1857. Re-classified in 2015, this plant is a popular garden plant in temperate areas around the world.
