Hydrangea seemannii
Zoom In Photo:

This rare species of climbing hydrangea is from Mexico, Central and South America. It has mid green, rounded, thick, glossy foliage that often has burgundy tones when young. In summer it offers copious amounts of ivory white flowers that first emerge as tight ivory clusters resembling duck eggs. Water well until established, especially if planted at the base of a tree. Smaller growing than H. integrifolia and thus better for use on smaller trees or walls. Increased light results in more flowers.
