This Hydrangea grows as a slow, deciduous vine, clinging by adhesive roots like English Ivy. For this reason, it is used on stone, brick or wood sided buildings. It can easily reach 50' long and 6' wide. Its wide, heart shaped, deep green leaves offer a nice contrast to the white "lacecap" flowers which appear in summer. The plant should receive part to full shade, along with average watering and fertile, well draining soil. Though it starts off slow, it will become a vigorous grower when established.
