The Climbing Hydrangea.
Its not often that we see Hydrangea semanii offered for sale however it is available and it does have a number of unique characteristics.
If you have never thought of an evergreen climbing hydrangea, well Hydrangea semanii is it. It will climb, using arial roots too attach itself to a fence, or to wind its way up through other plants. Not overly aggressive and pretty lacecap flowers.
Large serrated foliage providing year round coverage and good showy flowers that are creamy white with tinges of green in spring to summer. If grown in a position without support or a climbing frame H. semanii will form a bushy shrub. When support is provided it climbs using aerial roots.
How to Grow Hydrangea semanii
Like most hydrangeas a position with protection from hot afternoon sun and a humus rich soil with a cool root run seems to be ideal for H. semanii.
- Light shade is essential
- A humus rich soil that drains well.
- Added moisture during dry summers
- Mulch around roots to maintain moisture and a cool root run.
- Fertilise in spring with a slow release organic type fertiliser.
