Schizophragma hydrangeoides ‘Moonlight’
at Digging Dog


Japanese Hydrangea Vine

Who wouldn’t want a Schizophragma in their garden if only because it’s such a fun word to say? This genus of tall growing deciduous vines and showy flowers is little known in the U.S., but in the deep forest outside Hokkaido, Japan it grows everywhere. Try planting your Japanese Hydrangea Vine at the base of a wall or a tree trunk and watch it climb!

Large Band.

Schizophragma hydrangeoides ‘Moonlight’ full sun  partial shade

The lovely, lacy white flowers of this hard-to-find cultivar can grow up to 9 in. across and are ringed with porcelain-colored bracts. ‘Moonlight’ is distinguished by its spectacular heart-shaped leaves, whose deep green veins and silvery overlays create a striking pattern, and in autumn turn orange-red. Perfect for the north side of the house, this vine promises to illuminate a shady area.

Size: 30' 0"–40' 0" high wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“I found Digging Dog in a gardening magazine and am so thrilled I did. I went to their website after reading about them and was so impressed I immediately placed an order ( after checking with Garden Watchdog of course !) My plants were delayed 3 weeks due to the hot weather. Each Monday someone from Digging Dog called, explained the situation and explained the delay. What service!! My plants arrived today happy healthy and good size. I could not be happier and will shop Digging Dog much in the future.”
