How to Grow a Climbing Hydrangea Vine 

Hydrangea plants in blossom are beautiful, so a climbing vine may be your dream! Determine if this vining plant is right for your landscape and how to care for it.  

Slow-growing climbing hydrangeas are shrubby. Have patience. They grow quickly—one plant can cover a multi-story house.  

This can be good or bad, depending on your perspective. Vine length can surpass 30 feet under ideal conditions. They grow quickly yet are not invasive.  

Look for vigorous green foliage and white lacecap flower clusters in May, June or July, similar to other types of hydrangeas. Like bigleaf and mountain hydrangeas, they bloom on old wood. 

In order to keep vining plants like climbing hydrangeas looking great, use pole pruners for hard-to-reach spaces. Learn when to prune hydrangeas for big, showy blooms. 

These plants brighten up ugly fences and walls. Climbing hydrangea vines don't need trellises because they cling.  

The roots won't damage brick, wood, or other materials. In summer, lush leafy vines cover, but when the leaves fall, the sun beams through.

According to NC State Extension, these plants originate from Japan, Korea, and China. Southern grown plants like midday shade and dislike extreme heat and humidity.
