3-4m  Zone: ?

HYDRANGEA anomola var. petiolaris New Early Summer1868
10m or higher  Zone: 4
Native to Japan, Korea and Taiwan this is a deciduous, clinging climber, very showy in flower. Dark green foliage. Brown, peeling stems are furnished with aerial roots like those of ivy. It presses itself hard against its support, needing no additional framework to assist it in the upward climb. Suitable for shady walls, tree trunks, large stumps or as a spreading ground-cover. Although happy in shady places, it flowers more freely in sun. Flower-heads are beautiful "lacecaps", the small fertile white florets surrounded by large, showy bracts, so the effect is quite bold.
Germination Instructions: Easy, warm germinator.
