Genus Overview: Schizophragma

Common Name: Japanese Hydrangea Vine

The beautiful Japanese Hydrangea Vine comes in several forms and colors. It is self-clinging holding close and tight to the framework upon which it is allowed to climb or clamor; by comparison the better known Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris, Climbing Hydrangea, climbs over and over itself creating a thick, dense woody framework, up to 3 feet thick - decidedly not flat! The large, flattened 8” to 10” diameter inflorescences decorate the attractive vine in late spring or early summer in zone 5b – later than Climbing Hydrangea blooms. Leaves are finely serrated, obovate and coming to a point, almost heart-shaped. Older rich brown wood does exfoliate. As with the Climbing Hydrangea with which the range of Schizophragma overlaps, it will service your needs better if planted in fertile moisture-retentive soil. Better flowering will occur if planted in more sun. All of the following are offered as cutting grown plants.
