This beautiful self-clinging climber is similar to the climbing hydrangea with 8-10 inch wide florets of ivory white with large heart shaped cream-colored bracts. It is suitable for most fertile soils where it will flourish on north facing walls or up a tree trunk in light sun or shade. New leaves may scorch in the hot sun. The very serrated leaf is a lovely silvery color. It is very rare to find such a vigorous climber for shade - this is it!!
