SKU: 25000000000004589 Category:


A star plant, this climbing hydrangea thrives in some of the most shady, inhospitable areas of the garden. Slow to establish, it will eventually romp along a wall or fence, clinging by aerial roots. Its almost heart-shaped, variegated leaves turn yellow in autumn, and masses of showy, lacy, white flowerheads appear in late spring and early summer.

Flowering Period: May – July

Rate of Growth: Average

Soil: Moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil

Hardiness: Fully hardy

How to care for Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris:

Plant in moist, fertile soil and do not allow the soil to dry out while the plant is getting established. This hydrangea flowers on the previous season’s wood, so if you need to prune it back, do so in late autumn or early spring, but be warned that this will restrict flowering the following year.

Please note:

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.
