Additional Information About Native Climbing Hydrangea - Decumaria barbara

More about the Climbing Hydrangea...

Planting the Climbing Hydrangea, Decumaria barbara, is the perfect way to soften and decorate a trellis, tree trunk, or stark brick or stone garden wall. It can also be useful as a groundcover.

In May and June the vine produces lacy clusters of creamy white, honey-scented blooms that attract butterflies and provide a pleasing contrast to the dark leathery leaves. Decumaria won’t bloom unless it’s climbing, but its lush, glossy foliage makes a lovely groundcover all on its own.

Small, dry, urn-shaped fruits are available October through January. Fall leaf color is a clear, soft yellow. The foliage provides cover and nesting sites for birds and small mammals. 

Decumaria is easy to grow. It’s not aggressive, and the delicate aerial rootlets by which it clings won’t harm your walls or your trees. Decumaria is also one of the few North American native vines that will flower even in shade. Morning sun is tolerated but afternoon direct sun can hurt this vine. In the wild, Decumaria is usually found growing on river and stream banks, so it is not surprising that in the garden it responds best to moist, rich, acidic soils.
