Quick Overview:

Schizophragma hydrangeoides, commonly called Japanese hydrangea vine, is a deciduous, woody-stemmed, climbing vine which is valued for its toothed, heart-shaped, deep green leaves (3-5″ long) and large, flat-topped, lace cap hydrangea-like clusters (8-10″ across) of white flowers which bloom in early summer. Foliage turns yellow in fall. Attaches to and grows up flat vertical surfaces such as masonry walls by stem-borne adhesive rootlets. Reddish-brown stems provide some interest in winter.  ‘Moonlight’ is valued for its silvery, blue-green, heart-shaped leaves (3-5″ across) and large, flat-topped, lace cap hydrangea-like clusters (8-10″ across) of creamy white flowers which bloom for 6 to 8 weeks in summer.

Description

Best grown in rich, medium moisture, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade. Prune in late winter to early spring. A single plant will eventually grow 30′ or more wide, though for quick coverage of a wall, space 6-9′ apart.
