Description

Available Autumn/Winter 2016 - Schizophragma integrifolium is a rare and magnificent climbing plant with heads of white flowers and  bracts up to 30 cm across. These flower heads are larger then than those of the more commonly planted Schizophragma hydrangeoides.

Schizophragma integrifolium is native to Central and Western China, where it can be found growing in woody areas in valleys or on mountain slopes.

A delightful, self-clinging climber ideal for climbing up a wall, fence or old tree in a slightly shady area. Schizophragma integrifolium can also be grown with no support as an unusual ground cover plant.
