More Information

Description A timeless and elegant vine for shade! Climbing hydrangea has large 2-3" dark green glossy leaves on stems that will gradually climb to 30' tall & 8' wide after 10+ years. Climbing hydrangea can be grown up trees, chimneys, or along brick or rock walls. In spring, when it pushes out soft new growth, that stem soon develops clinging rootlets that help it scamper up a surface and transform it into a lush, green wall. Native to Japan, this vigorous woody vine thrives in full shade to part shade conditions, growing and flowering well even in low light. It's unbothered by pests and disease. It is a bit slow to get established (at least 2 years, in most situations), but your patience will be rewarded with a stunning, long-lived plant that will be the pride of your landscape.   Details Botanical name: Hydrangea anomala petiolaris
Common name: Climbing hydrangea
Zone: 4 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun-Part Sun
Height x width: 10-30' x 10-20'
Flower color: White
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Summer-fall
Bloom time: Summer
Features: Heat tolerant, fragrant, cold tolerant, best for beginners
Uses: Background, foundation planting, hedge, massing, ornamental, specimen
How To Grow Soil: Best planted in cool, moist, well-drained soils, but can adapt to less-than-ideal sites if mulched and watered regularly, especially as it is getting established.
Light: Most varieties tolerate full sun in the North, but benefit from afternoon shade. Tolerates full sun only if grown with consistent moisture. In the South, plants require afternoon shade. Avoid dry conditions or drought - though established plants can survive, they'll look less than ideal when stressed.
Water: Water to keep soil moist, but not wet. If you are planting under a tree, pay particular attention to watering, as the tree will likely compete more effectively for water than the climbing hydrangea.
Spacing: 10 ft. recommended, but it depends on your design goal.
Fertilizing: Fertilize once in spring with a fertilizer designed to encourage blooms (such as 15-30-15).
Winterizing: Nothing special required, beyond a 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch.
Maintenance & pruning: This variety blooms on old wood. If it is growing too large, prune to the desired size immediately after flowering. Pruning in late summer, fall, winter, or spring will remove developing flower buds. In spring, only prune out dead wood once the new growth has emerged. Does not transplant well, unless still very young and not attached to a structure.

Growing good

The hydrangea came packed very nicely, we planted it the same day and have been watering it every other day due to no rain and high heat and it's already beginning to spread out, think it was a very good purchase! Thank you.

Climbing hydrangea

It’s looking good. I received it in the mail but I’m not yet ready to plant it in the ground yet. I just bumped it up in a slightly bigger pot. I have no previous experience with climbing hydrangeas. Hopefully it likes where ever I end up planting it.

My plant arrived intact

Beautiful, pretty good size and healthy! I immediately placed it in the ground and is already taking off next to the umbrella trellis I got for her. She’s going to be an absolute beauty. Thank you for a great and fast service. I’ll definitely come back for more❤️

Love 'em!!!

I purchased 4 of these same climbing hydrangeas in 2017 from a different retailer. Wish I had seen them here for $24.99 first! It took a couple of years to get rolling, but now they are spectacular on my East fence city garden. I added nine foot trellises since my fence could only be 6 feet tall and cemented them 1 foot from the fence. Now it's like the "secret garden" back there all summer long. Couldn't be more pleased!
