When it first emerges in the spring, the heart-shaped foliage of Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris 'Miranda' is two-tone, pale yellow green circling a dark center. As the leaves develop, the pale yellow green becomes dramatically more yellow. This beautiful climber is self-clinging which makes it suitable for growing up a tree or on a large open wall. Climbing hydrangeas are slow to develop, often taking three or four years before they show much growth. Once they settle in to their sites, they grow much more rapidly. Flowering can also take several years. The lace-cap inflorescences are 8-inches across. Patience is rewarded with a rich floral and foliage display.
