When planting your Climbing Hydrangea be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plant to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant Hydrangeas. Avoid planting hydrangeas in summer especially when temperatures are mid80s or higher.
The Climbing Hydrangea can grow in full sun to full shade and prefers moist, well-drained, fertile soil. In warmer climates, be sure this Hydrangea has some shade. Keep the soil moist, but not saturated, especially in summer and in the first year after planting. Throughout its life Hydrangeas will do best with a deep watering once weekly during hot temperatures. Mulching at about 3 inches deep is highly recommended for hydrangeas. Mulching will cut back on watering needs and protect your plant in extreme temperatures. Choose a slow release fertilizer (like the one you can purchase here). Fertilize once in spring and again in summer for best results. You don’t need to prune this hydrangea, but pruning after blooming has ceased can help encourage a denser growth, renew an older plant, and maintain size.
The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. You can treat mites, scale, whiteflies, and aphids naturally with neem oil or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Fungal infection can be prevented by making sure the planting site has good drainage and by avoiding overhead watering. Fungal infections can be treated with a fungicide. Generally, treating fungus after infection isn't effective so if you have problems with other plants or in a prior year, treat preventatively in early spring.
The Climbing Hydrangea climbs walls, fences, trellises and more, transforming them into a true vision! It is an inexpensive way to mask an ugly fence. Allow this clinging vine to grow up an arbor or creep along the ground in a lovely cottage garden. This vine can be used as a unique ground cover. Allow it to choose its own path, crawling along the ground, over rocks, and down slopes and low walls. The Climbing Hydrangea can be used in place of invasive ivy for the walls of your home. It is deciduous so it helps conserve energy by allowing sun to penetrate in winter and shading your home from the sun in summer. Let this noninvasive, but clingy vine crawl up a boring shade tree for a stunning look.
