Are you looking for an extraordinary climber with attractive foliage and flowers, too? Climbing hydrangea could be your perfect choice. Its natural habitat is the area east of Asia – from Sakhaline, through Japan, Korea to Taiwan. Miranda is a yellow variegated form of this species and interestingly was found roughly at the same time as Firefly variety from 1999 but in a different location. Some sources list them as one plant which is not correct but putting them side by side no one can tell the difference.

Miranda is a popular variegated climbing hydrangea with medium large, dark green leaves with rich yellow brims. They are deciduous, 8-10 cm across, heart-shaped to almost rounded. The flowers come up from early summer until mid-summer. Only the flowers on the outskirts of the domed corymbs open up and remain open for a long time without a sign of deteriorating. Miranda is not a prolific bloomer and is valued mostly for its highly decorative foliage which perfectly covers its support. You can let it climb trees, fences, and walls or make it a shrub providing only a short central support, pruning off lateral branches regularly.

Climbing hydrangea makes aerial roots which reliably attach to its support and hold quite massive skeleton of thick branches. For this reason we advise providing a solid support so that the branches to not brake as the plants get stronger on flimsy hedges. If you wish to grow it in full sun water is at least once week. It needs cool and moist soil that is light and acidic, rich in humus. It performs best in part-shaded location and does well in shade, too. Fully hardy to -34°C (USDA zone 4).
