Plant ID and advice
Lincolnshire, United Kingdom
I purchased the plant in the pic below from a market last year and it was just labelled as Hydrangea. Now it is starting to develop am I right in saying its a climbing Hydrangea Petiolaris? Also I am wanting it to grow up the wall in the picture and over the gate archway, do I need to train it up trellis/twine etc or will it find its own way?
Also I am going to build a small planting box around the base of the the upright support column in the third picture. I would like a climber that will eventually cover the upright that remains evergreen and if its one that flowers its a bonus. I need it to be nice on the eye all year round as the gateway is the entrance to my wifes beauty business at home.
Kind Regards and your replies are much appreciated
