Buy Pileostegia viburnoides climbing hydrangea: Unusual evergreen climber for a shady wall

  • Position: full sun or full shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Flowering period: August to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Clusters of tiny, star-shaped, creamy-white flowers with prominent stamens are borne in dense panicles from late summer into the autumn offset against the long, leathery, dark green leaves. This versatile, self-clinging evergreen climber is perfect for training through a robust tree or covering a shady wall. Best planted in fertile, well-drained soil, it may take up to five years to become fully established.

  • Garden care: After flowering shorten the stems to fit the available space. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant.

How far apart do you plant these plants please?


It depends on the effect you are trying to create - and how impatient you are! They will eventually spread to 2m or so, however you may want to plant them closer than this if you want more immediate impact - particularly as they are quite slow growing.


Is it suitable for containers?


This is a large climbing plant, so it will be much happier if it can spread it's roots down into the ground - rather than be confined to a pot.


When is the right time to plant this?


This is a hardy plant, so please click on the following link for more information. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEkSggFJMdE&t=19s


Could a climbing hydrangea go by an east facing wall with trellis at the top no sun in the day or any other suitable plant


Hello, The plants prefer a solid surface to cling to, and like most plants, they will need some sun throughout the day. Probably the most shade-tolerant climber then is an ivy - please click on the link below to go to them. https://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.hedera/sort.0/
