||Not a true Hydrangea, but we all know how common names confuse the issue of nomeculture. This selection of Decumaria has a much more glossy, waxy cuticle giving the foliage a very shiny, wet finish to the larger leaves that is more appealing to the eye than the normal species. This vine climbs with tendrils, but does not strangle trees. It grows very similar to Bignonia capreolata, Cross Vine, straight up a tree on the sunny side of the trunk and blooms flat head cluster of tiny creamy white flowers. Decumaria flowers looks a lot like a Viburnum flowers to the untrained eye. It can climb to 25'High on a structure or it will trail along the ground and over rocks and stumps as a ground cover. Decumaria seems to remain evergreen in winter when tempatures do not go below 8-10 degrees F.
