The Climbing Hydrangea (Hydrangea anomala petiolaris) is a unique departure from the standard hydrangea. Plant this vining specimen in your yard this spring to enjoy fragrant large white flower clusters in May through June.

The vines even have the ability to cling to a concrete wall or tree using their aerial roots.
The Climbing Hydrangea vine flourishes in moist, well-drained soils that are acidic. However, this resilient plant will tolerate dryer conditions as well. Growing Climbing Hydrangea plants is incredibly low maintenance and very worth the beauty it brings to a yard.
Ideal conditions for the Anomala Hydrangea includes full shade and a well draining soil medium. However, these hardy yard shrubs can also tolerate partial shade, afternoon shade and full sun in cooler climates. This shade-loving plant can be slow to establish, but don’t let it fool you.

In the fall, this deciduous plant thins, revealing the reddish-brown stems beneath. The bare stem form allows sun to shine through and makes for a stunning winter interest shrub.
