What is a climbing hydrangea suitable for?
The Hydrangea anomalia Petiolaris, also called climbing hydrangea, is a beautiful garden plant for covering a wall. It is the only climbing variety of hydrangea. It is not immediately obvious that it is related to the hydrangea. That is why you have to see the flowers in summer. These consist of a wreath of white and green bracts. The heart of the flowers consists of dozens of small white buds that fall off after flowering. The bracts remain on the climbing hydrangea until winter and create a beautiful winter silhouette
Hydrangea anomala petiolaris in the garden
An older climbing hydrangea with weathered, noble branches turns into a snow-white carpet of filigree flowers in early summer. There is no nicer way to cover a house wall. A favourable location for the climbing hydrangea is a cool spot in light shade and a permeable soil that contains some moisture. A climbing hydrangea first attaches itself to the wall and then forms long sides. On a lower wall, growth stops when the topmost areas are reached. If the flowering branches of the climbing hydrangea become too bushy, you can cut them back in late winter. In winter the climbing hydrangea loses its flowers. What remains are the beautiful, leafy branches. Just like ivy, the climbing hydrangea does not need any support when climbing. This climbing plant is best at home in a place in partial shade.
