Hydrangea anomala petiolaris is an excellent climbing species with glossy, finely toothed leaves and many attractive lace-cap white flowers in summer. Self clinging, this deciduous climber thrives in sun or shade and is very useful where a flowering climber is required in shaded positions such as a north facing wall. Can be a slow starter, but vigorous once it gets going
- Common Names: climbing hydrangea
Plant with good compost in any fertile, free draining soil, in sun or shade. Support whilst it gets established, watering if necessary in the first year. Prune after flowing if necessary
QUESTION & ANSWER
Will this plant thrive in clay soil?
This plant has no problem growing in clay soil as long as it is free-draining. Always incorporate some good quality planting compost when you plant. This will help the soil to drain better when it rains but also reduce how much it dries out in summer.
