A woody climbing plant that has the unique ability to flower
and grow against walls facing the North. Although a slow
starter, a climbing Hortensia can become as high and broad as
an apartment building. It takes about three years before
the first flowers appear.
The Climbing Hortensia flowers in midsummer with large corymbs
about 10 cm across with large bright white sterile flowers
with green-yellow fertile flowers in the center.
