Afternoon all,am i correct in thinking this is a climbing Lacehead Hydrangea,its about 3 feet high and 7 feet wide and started flowering 2 weeks ago,as you can tell its white and trailing a fence, ,Alan
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.
Alan .......... where's the pic?
The climbing types will show little roots along the stems, that how it clings. If it hasnt got those its an ordinary shrub type.
alan are you sure it's not a viurnum (thingy..!!!can't remember full name!)
SO SORRY i dont know what happened,cheap camera and an idiot using it ,so heres at last the pics
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
heres a pic of mine, its only been planted since end of summer last year, no sign of any clingers as yet, dose smell lovely though,
Hi all,Petiolaris it is then,a very nice climbing Hydrangea, a must for propagating,its clinging to the fence for about 7 feet and 3 feet high and in very good nick,im well pleased with that one, many thanks to you all for the help,and its still pouring here in Norfolk . Alan4711
