I love climbing hydrangea but I don’t think I could handle this kind of exuberance. Spotted at the Dunn Gardens, Seattle.
This week I visited North Beach, Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay, about 45 minutes from my home. I hadn’t been there since the 1980s,...
Keep in mind that I’m not talking about gardens that are regularly visited by the public, via bus tours, Open Days, and appointments. Those...
Since ripping out the turfgrass in my new townhouse garden in 2012, I’m still waiting for the turfless garden to look DONE, like Evelyn...
There’s one like that at the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden south of Seattle. they like it here.
Very impressive. My favorite will always be the one at Skylands Botanical Garden in NJ. It is climbing the front of a big tudor mansion with a Schizophragma on the other side of the door.
At first I thought you were saying you love to climb hydrangea…
I like puns but missed that (unintentional) one. Funny thought.
I did not know about the hydrangea, In any case it looks impressive.
I love these too, but that’s a good picture to show someone who thinks it can grow on a 5′ fence and then stop. They can and will take over the world if given the opportunity. :c)
My climbing Hydrangia is old, I got it from White Flower Farm, back in the day when they were one of the few places that offered it. It is on the detached 2 car brick garage. If I let it, it would eat the garage. Each year I trim out a pick-up truck load and it doesn’t even phase it. For a few years it was the japanese beetles’ choice for consumption (one of the few times I resorted to bug spray. I sprayed the hydrangia and the beetles dropped, sounding like the patter of rain. It was a joyous sound). They stripped it of its leaves in July, it came right back.
