Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris
While most gardeners think of big balls of flowers on a tidy shrub when thinking of hydrangeas, this member of the genus is a climbing vine. The Climbing Hydrangea is valued for its late season bloom; white flowers borne in flat-topped clusters grace this vine in summer. The plant is tolerant of a wide variety of conditions, and not troubled by bests or diseases.
