Hydrangea petiolaris (Large Plant)

Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris, Climbing Hydrangea

Hardy Shrub

An elegant climbing Hydrangea that's perfect for those cold, north facing walls that rarely see the sun. Shade loving Hydrangea petiolaris bears lacy white blooms in summer that contrast beautifully with its cloak of dark green foliage. As autumn approaches, its heart shaped leaves turn a buttery shade of yellow that will brighten even the darkest corner. Although a little slow to get going, once established this superb RHS AGM variety will quickly scale walls and fences with its clinging ariel roots. Height: 10m (32'). Spread: 3m (10').

Hydrangea petiolaris thrives in a sunny, semi shaded or full shade position, with shelter from cold, drying winds. Grow hydrangea plants in any rich fertile, moist soil. Improve the soil prior to planting by adding plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost, ensuring that it is mixed in thoroughly and deeply. Grow Hydrangea petiolaris against walls and fences where it will cling and support itself via aerial roots.
Water regularly until plants are fully established. The climbing hydrangea should be pruned immediately after flowering, reducing the stems to restrict their growth to the available space and to improve the shape of the plant. In the spring apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant. Caution: Contact with hydrangea foliage may irritate the skin and eyes and all parts are harmful if eaten.
