Default Climbing Hydrangea 'Petiolaris'


Planted late last year on the North wall of our house, not seeming to do
very much. Should go to 50ft, but we realise that it has to establish
itself.

Question. When should we see it start to climb?

I planted one about eighteen months ago and it's just starting to go.

Hope this helps,

I moved to my present house 5 years ago and bought theis plant somteime
during our first summer here.
It's now growing (too) well and has been for about 3 years.
So I believe you are right: just be patient. It's a lovely plant! well woth
waiting for on a North facing wall.

Same here, planted one this time last year and it's still less then 12
inches high, although it's bushing out nicely.

I believe these things are slow to start but I'm getting rather impatient
and thinking of trying something else instead.

SNAP!! But following the advice and comments here, Thanks to you all, we
will try to be a little more patient.

The message
from "Janice" contains these words:

I've had mine four years and it's still only about 3 to 4 feet and only
just now beginning to cling successfully to the wall it's against. It's
been a bit neglected and probably rather dry, but I can confirm that
they can be very slow to get going! I think mine is just beginning to
take off now.

A watched kettle never boils...

They take a few years to settle down to steady growth - I presume they
need sufficient roots before they even consider reaching for the sky.

We have two. The one on the north wall thrives and has just reached
about 20' after about 15 years. The other one is self pruning in a wind
tunnel and has never got taller than about 6' without the higher bits
snapping off.
