Climbing Hydrangea on tree?
Last fall I purchased number of things at the Native Plant Society sale. I am excited about the climbing hydrangea but after reading about it's robust growth habits I am uncertain where to put it. I don't want it to climb on the garage, house or deck, since we need to paint or powerwash regularly. I saw a mention online where it can grow on a tree. Would that eventually kill the tree? We do have one tree right in the yard that would be in sight, get good sun etc. Another tree option is a healthy pine, near edge of the woods, where we could still see the flowers. The only other option is at the water's edge there is a stone retaining wall, with rip rap going to the waters edge. It's not MY wall, although it does cross our property line. I think a flowering vine would enhance the ugly wall. But I wouldn't want to be responsible for damage to the wall. The neighbor isn't in residence. And because we've had some previous disagreements about the wall being on my property, I don't want to ask. If it won't do much harm, I'd just go ahead and give it a try.
Any thoughts or suggestions of where to place this beauty ?
