Got Shade? 'Moonlight' Japanese Hydrangea Vine

Try 'Moonlight' Hydrangea Vine! (Schizophragma hydrangeoides 'Moonlight') Zone: 5 - 9 Height: 180"
I just planted this vine against a stone wall in a very shady site. It tolerates part to full shade and adheres well to a wall...In midsummer, large, lacy heads of hydrangea-like flowers form along this cultivar's stems, offering a moonlit display. The flowers can last for up to 2 months! Disease and pest resistant.

With lovely pewter mottling on each heart-shaped leaf, this rare vine is perfect for lighting up shadowy sites. It can easily cover walls on the north side of a home or on trunks of large trees.
While it is called Hydrangea it is not a real hydrangea...it is in the same family, however. It may look like a climbing hydrangea but it hugs a wall more closely and it is more showy.
