Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Climbing hydrangea grow best in average to moist, well-drained soil, in full sun or shade. Consistent moisture, dappled shade and protection from the hot, afternoon sun is recommended. Little maintenance is required because of its slow growth habit. If shaping is required, do so in late winter.
