Position: Partial or reasonably heavy shade.
Soil: Moist, fertile soil.
Flowering Period: July - September.
Rate of Growth: Slow until established then moderate.
Habit: Schizophragma hydrangeoides eventually grows to be a large, self-clinging climbing plant.
Height: 10 m (32 ft)
Spread: 4 m (12 ft)
Notes: In cooler, northern parts of the United Kingdom, Schizophragma hydrangeoides will grow in a sunny position. In southern areas with hot summers, they much prefer partial shade. This plant requires protection from slugs.
Schizophragma hydrangeoides is similar in some respects to the more common Hydrangea anomola subsp petiolaris (climbing hydrangea), but with 15 - 25 cm wide cymes (clusters) of ivory-white flowers with conspicuous heart-shaped, cream coloured bracts.
