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.


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.

Blooms July–August.

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

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.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
