Hydrangea seemannii / Evergreen climbing hydrangea
A favourite plant amongst our customers for many years. This hard-to-find hydrangea is unusual for a variety of reasons: first of all, it's evergreen; second of all, it's a climber, and a self-clinging one at that; and thirdly, it thrives in shade. With all of these atributes - not to mention the gorgeous white flowers in summer - it's a really useful and beautiful plant that should find a home in many gardens. Plant in normal, well-drained, fertile soil, against a wall or fence. It will stick of its own accord, though it may take a couple of years to get going. You can stick it to the wall with duck tapes if that helps to keep it in place whilst it establishes. Ideal for a shady way, although it will also grow in part or full sun. It will take 2-3 years to flower, and will be slow to take off in the first couple of years. Once established, it will spread faster. For a longer stretch of wall or fence, space plants approx 3 metres apart. Very hardy to cold, wind and sea air make it easy to grow in almost all locations. 3 litre pot, Irish growm plants approx 30cm height.
