Pileostegia viburnoides

climbing hydrangea

5 year guarantee Perfect for pollinators
3 lt pot (60cm cane) £39.99
  • Position: full sun or full shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Flowering period: August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Clusters of tiny, star-shaped, creamy-white flowers with prominent stamens are borne in dense panicles from late summer into the autumn offset against the long, leathery, dark green leaves. This versatile, self-clinging evergreen climber is perfect for training through a robust tree or covering a shady wall. Best planted in fertile, well-drained soil, it may take up to five years to become fully established.

  • Garden care: After flowering shorten the stems to fit the available space. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant.
