Description

Hydrangea anomala (Climbing hydrangea). This is a strong deciduous vine that will eventually grow to about 20m. The flowers are produced in clusters of white blooms and smooth foliage. The autumn foliage will turn a golden yellow and even the reddish-brown bark will peel which will provide some winter interest and texture. You can prune if desired in late winter or very early spring to maintain a good shape. This vine takes time to become established but will begin to grow quickly once it does.
