Description

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.
