Planting the Rose Sensation Climbing Hydrangea, also known as False Hydrangea Vine, is the perfect way to soften and decorate a trellis, tree trunk, or stark brick or stone garden wall.
In May and June the vine produces abundant, large, 7 to 8-inch diameter lacecap pink flowers that surround a rounded cluster of tiny white flower buds. The buds and blooms appear at the ends of branches that can extend up to 3 feet from the tree trunk or other supporting structure. The dried flower clusters and reddish brown peeling bark are attractive in winter.
No attachments are necessary for this vine to climb as it naturally clings to bark, wood, brick and other surfaces using its own aerial roots, which won't harm your walls or trees. Climbing Hydrangea is also one of a few ornamental vines that will flower even in shade. It grows in full sun to part shade in Zones 5a to 7b but will appreciate filtered sun or shade in the afternoon in Zones 8a-9b. Grows well in moist but well-drained soils of average fertility.
