One of the problems with Schizophragma and other climbing hydrangea is that they can take a while to mature and produce flowers. Flirty Girl™ solves this issue, producing beautiful flowering 2 or 3 gallon plants with loads of lightly fragrant white blooms. Young purple shoots add to its interest. Developed in France by Pepinieres Minier.
Prefers moist, well-drained soils on the acidic side.
Blooms on old wood but rarely needs pruning
Specimen plant; woodland gardens.
Slow to get established, and will not bloom until it is growing vigorously on its intended support structure. Patience is required, but is rewarded with a long-lived, heavily blooming specimen.
