Hydrangea Climbers

Search Hydrangea Climbers


These high performing yet undemanding deciduous shrubs were a little out of fashion for a while being considered a little "common". Nowadays they are a "hot" item on the export cut flower market and as a garden plant they have deservedly earned the respect from a new generation of gardeners.

Hydrangeas are really easy to grow and will adapt to most conditions however they will perform their best when given some dapled afternoon shade and plenty of water when it is hot and dry in summer. The name Hydrangea comes from the Greek hydor which means water and aggos which means jar. Most Hydrangeas grown in New Zealand are varieties of Hydrangea macrophylla (large-leaved), often referred to as Mop Head or Lace Cap. The colour range includes shades of white, cream, blue and pink.

aka Climbing Hydrangea

A hardy deciduous climbing Hydrangea that is self clinging. Dark green serrated leaves and pretty flattened white flower heads in summer. Something a little bit different to cover a wall or fence. Protect from afternoon sun. Deciduous.

I have seen this Hydrangea growing in England covering a whole brick wall in a court-yard and it looked fabulous. I have used to cover unsightly water tanks to great effect.

aka Climbing Hydrangea

This is a very rare, self-clinging, climbing Hydrangea that hails from Mexico. The evergreen leaves are large, serrated and dark green. The flat white flower heads open from large buds and appear en masse in summer. Protect from harsh frost. Evergreen.

An interesting plant that can be used to cover an unsightly wall or fence, perhaps use it to cover a water tank if you live rural. Like me the plant may droop a little in our harsh afternoon sun but as long as it is well watered it will recover as the day cools. Perhaps happiest in a morning sun only position.

aka Japanese Clg Hydrangea

A special climber from the Hydrangea family. The broad oval leaves are topped off by small creamy flower heads in summer. These flowers are surrounded by drooping creamy-yellow bracts. Quite showy especially against a brick wall or similar where it will cling unsupported. Happiest in a sunny position, hardy and deciduous.

While Schizophragma (Ski-zo-frag-ma) prefers a sunny spot it can take some shade. The name means Schizo (to divide) and phragma (a wall).
