Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris 'Silver Lining'

Description: A new variegated form of the climbing Hydrangea. The large leaves have a creamy whit margin and blotches and the leaves look silvery green overall. Creamy white flat panicles of flowers throughout summer give additional interest to this pretty climber.

Uses: Plant against a wall as self supporting. Will tolerate some shade so effective to light up a darker wall or corner.

Climate/Position: Sun or partial shade

Height/Spread: 15 metres x 3 metres

Soil Requirements: Well drained but moist fertile soil

Pruning: No regular pruning required but may require shaping or reduction of long shoots in late winter or early spring but this will reduce flower production as the flowers are produced on old shoots.

Special Requirements: Ensure it doesn't dry out especially when getting established. A good mulch after planting will help.
