I bought it as it was a shade lover and put it in a dark spot between the oak tree and the shed.
It has never flowered and didn’t do much at all until we moved the shed (well all right – it wasn’t so much moved as knocked down before it fell down) – then it grabbed hold of the oak tree and shot up at a rate of knots sticking itself to the trunk.
The leaves don’t look very hydrangea like to me.
Does anyone know what it is? I’m very fond of the oak tree and worried that this clinging plant might harm it. Or am I being daft? Over to you!
And as a thank you for putting up with my daft questions, here’s an RHS competition to win £1000 for your garden/plant/flower photo with additional prizes and a category for under 18s. There is an entry fee, but under 18s can enter free!
And a whole batch of competitions from the lovely Gardeners’ World Magazine.
