    hard without a picture, i have a climbing hydrangea, best google for climbing variety as looking at the pics i found there is only white/cream. my bargain buy last year has allready surpassed by expectation of it, wasnt expecting much this year but have been suprised at how much growth and the fact im having flowers.

    The climbing types will show little roots along the stems, that how it clings. If it hasnt got those its an ordinary shrub type.

    It does look like my petiolaris but mine definitely clings to fence

    They are a bit slow to start clinging sometimes. If it's got no upright growth and flops everywhere it probably is. Also a bit fussy about what they cling to, a treated fence might slow it down
