Schizophragma hydrangeoides íMoonlightí has luminous silvery-green foliage with dark green veins in its youth. The summer flowers are white, lacecap inflorescences. A true clinging vine, it grows most happily on stone or brick or up a shady tree - anything it can securely grasp. Were it never to bloom the foliage alone is dazzling. Itís the first of the "hydrangea" vines to leaf out in spring for us a few weeks before its cousin íRoseumí or the larger, rampant Schizophragma integrifolia (either form we grow). As for Schizophragma megalocarpum we are standing back in some awe. Itís been close to evergreen in our zone (semi-deciduous would be the textbook claim). As for Moonlight, itís best in part shade. Beautiful plant. Length or height? We saw one covering the end of an old stone barn (30 feet tall) in Wales. It has climbed more than 40 feet up various pines trees here. Zones 5-7.
