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. Silver Lining is a white variegated form of this species which was discovered by Nico Huisman, a Dutch nurseryman, as a spontaneous mutation of Firefly variety in 2005. Granted patents: PP25075 (USA – 2014) and EU 38261 (Europe – 2014). It was awarded Silver Medal at prestigious novelty trade fair Plantarium in 2012.

Silver Lining is a climbing hydrangea sought after especially for its colourful foliage. Its medium large leaves are pale green in the centre and heavily white variegated at margins. 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 and remain open for a long time without a sign of deteriorating. Silver Lining 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).
