Skylands Giant Climbing Hydrangea - 3 qt
Skylands Giant Climbing Hydrangea - 3 qt Unlike most climbing hydrangeas ‘Skyland Giant’ is eager to bloom and for us has shown flowers in one gallon containers. This is a selected form of climbing hydrangea (Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris ’Skylands Giant’) with sterile sepals more numerous and larger than the species. It was found at the New Jersey State Botanical Garden at Skylands. It shares similar traits with the species in other respects, somewhat slow to establish, a true climbing vine with root-like holdfasts, blooming most heavily when frustrated in its climbing. Deciduous. Zones 4 - 8.

Pink Flowered Hydrangea Vine - 3 quart
Schizophragma hydrangeoides ’Roseum’ is a blush-pink flowered form of the Japanese climbing hydrangea vine. It is pink for us in the south only on first opening, quickly becoming white under our heat & humidity. But for those days it reminds us that spring is a time of wide possibility. Even pink. (We saw stable pinkness at Crug Farm in Wales many years ago.) A true climber it will attach to your wall or tree and head up. Deciduous, for partial shade in zones 5 to 7, it may reach 30’ in time. Blooms more readily in our experience than the other "hydrangea" climbers. Rare.
Moonlight Climbing Hydrangea - 2 quart
Schizophragma hydrangeoides ’Moonlight’ 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. It’s the first of the "hydrangea" vines to leaf out in spring for us a few weeks before its cousin ’Roseum’ or the larger, rampant Schizophragma integrifolia (either form we grow). As for Schizophragma megalocarpum we are standing back in some awe. It’s been close to evergreen in our zone (semi-deciduous would be the textbook claim). As for Moonlight, it’s 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.
Another Chinese Climbing Hydrangea - 3 qt
A large growing climber, Schizophragma integrifolium var. fauriei tolerates more sun than most of the hydrangea climbers and grows with purpose. It clings by holdfasts to your tree, wall or house, but not your leg (we’re not talking Akebia here). Unless you’re a statue, and if so, pay by cash. Large white blooms in late spring will make a tremendous addition to almost any vertical space. Slightly smaller leaves and less tomentose than SKU #631, but otherwise very similar. I believe it was the learned, but apparently boring taxonomist Alfred Rehder who made the varietal distinction based on some unknown trait that he never disclosed. Height or length to 40 feet plus.
Zones 6?-9.
Another Chinese Climbing Hydrangea - 2 qt
A lusty and large growing climber, Schizophragma integrifolium var. molle tolerates more sun than most of the hydrangea climbers and grows with intent. Blooms are white and large - nearly a foot across. This vine needs a good stout wall or tree to climb. The foliage on this selection is somewhat larger and fuzzier than Schizophragma integrifolium var. faurei, described by Rehder in his sleep-inducing tome (but see our SKU 2932). Height? Length? If adequately supported or attached, easily 30-50 feet, possibly more. Zones (6?)7-9.
