Great Plant Picks - Climbing hydrangea is an elegant and graceful clinging vine with year-round interest. In early spring new buds unfurl into bright green leaves that maintain a fresh appearance throughout the summer. Delicate, lacy white blooms appear in early summer to brighten the garden. Although this vine can be slow to reach blooming age, it is well worth the wait. In autumn it becomes a beacon of bright, butter yellow foliage, which eventually drops to expose the interesting, peeling bark of the older stems. Side branches reach out from the main trunks, creating a layered, three-dimensional effect. Climbing hydrangea becomes a large, heavy vine with age: Be sure to provide it with a strong and long-lasting support. It is striking when grown up tall evergreen trees, where it can brighten a woodland setting. One of the few vines that blooms well in shade, it also can be used on a north-facing wall or fence. Climbing hydrangea will grow well in full sun to dappled shade with well-drained to sandy soil. Provide regular watering for the best growth and flowering. It will eventually become a large plant, give enough space to fully develop over the years. The vine is often slow to settle in and it can take two to three years before it begins to grow vigorously. It is also slow to start blooming- five to seven years may pass before it produces its first bloom. Those who are patient will be rewarded with one of our most beautiful vines.
