A beautiful, woody climbing plant, Schizophragma hydrangeoides has ornamental white flower bracts and inhabits damp woods and thickets in mountains in Japan.

A self-supporting climber, similar in some respects to the more common Hydrangea anomola subsp petiolaris (climbing hydrangea), but with 15 - 25 cm wide cymes (clusters) of ivory-white flowers with conspicuous heart-shaped, cream coloured bracts.

Schizophragma hydrangeoides is an unusual and spectacular climber for many shady situations, including growing up trees and walls facing north or east.

Supplied Size: 2L / 3L pots (approx 3 years old, 30 - 40 cm tall)

  • Position: Partial or reasonably heavy shade.
  • Soil: Moist, fertile soil.
  • Hardiness: Hardy.
  • Flowering Period: July - September.
  • Rate of Growth: Slow until established then moderate.
  • Habit: Schizophragma hydrangeoides eventually grows to be a large, self-clinging climbing plant.
    • Height: 10 m (32 ft)
    • Spread: 4 m (12 ft)
  • Notes: In cooler, northern parts of the United Kingdom, Schizophragma hydrangeoides will grow in a sunny position. In southern areas with hot summers, they much prefer partial shade. This plant requires protection from slugs.
