Japanese hydrangea vine (Schizophragma  hydrangeoides 'Moonlight')
skiz-oh-FRAG-mah hy-drain-jee-OY-deez
Genus:  Schizophragma
This woody root climber has long-stalked, ovate silver-green leaves with deep-green veining. In midsummer, shimmering drops of creamy, moonlight flowers shower the foliage. Blooms are really broad, flattened heads of numerous fertile florets surrounded by large, sterile outer flowers that have just one spade-shaped petal each. Fragrance is like a mixture of apples and lilies.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Related to climbing hydrangea, this plant is slow to mature, taking 7 years or so to put on a good show.
Care:  Grow against a wall, fence, or large tree, at least 24 inches away from host plant or support, in moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil.
Propagation:  Take greenwood cuttings in early or midsummer; take semi-ripe cuttings in late summer.
Problems:  Infrequent.
