Description

Family Hydrangeaceae
Originating from Japan

A striking and vigorous climber bearing large heart-shaped, deciduous leaves that have a silver sheen with dark green veins. It clings to walls, trees or stumps creating the jungle effect, or over a pergola in a traditional English garden setting. Its foliage will grow larger in shade and create a truly exotic effect, with the silver colouration standing out more in dappled woodland light, the foliage almost matches the impact of its pure white blooms consisting of a central spray of small fertile flowers surrounded by large bracts held on slender stems that radiate outward from the flowers centre.
They appear in mid to late summer and the display can last for over a month. In a woodland garden this climber can turn tree trunks into columns of silver and white or happily scramble on the ground, in a situation where space is limited it may be pruned after flowering to control its vigorous growth. It is found in the wild growing on rocky cliff faces, and will tolerate most soil types and root competition, although it will perform best in a humus rich moist and loamy one in sun or shade.

Height and spread after 2 – 3 years 2m x 1.5m
Semi mature height after 5 – 6 years if not pruned 3m x 3m
Potential height after 15 – 20 years, if support is available 6 m x 3m
