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.

Growing Tips

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.
