Miranda Climbing Hydrangea (Hydrangea petiolaris 'Miranda' ) is a variegated variety of the deciduous, woody vine Hydrangea petiolaris. It has dark green foliage with creamy yellow to white margins. Gorgeous, fragrant white blooms appear in flat topped clusters. The foliage turns yellow in the fall. In the winter, the exfoliating reddish-brown bark can be seen, adding year-round appeal.
Best used by growing up a brick, stone, or wooden wall but can also be grown as a mounding shrub or ground cover. This Variegated Climbing Hydrangea has become increasingly popular as an ornamental vine since it grows slowly and is easier to manage than many other vines.
