Schizophragma

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.

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.

Blooms July–August.

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

Schizophragma hydrangeoides Rosea

‘Rosea’ displays a splendid form with interest in every aspect: rose-blushed bracts, mahogany stems, red-hued leaf petioles, and handsome dark green toothed foliage. Richly textured, each leaf is thick and leathery, and grows in an elongated heart shape. This climbing beauty will gracefully enliven a somber spot in your garden.

Blooms July–August.

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
