Hydrangea anomala
Climbing Hydrangea

Climbing Hydrangea, normally a vine, may also be allowed to ramble at its base as a groundcover (as shown here), where its stems may root and serve as a source of young plants, if they are severed from the mother plant and transplanted in very early Spring. However, its intentional usage as a groundcover is rare, as it attracts many blown leaves in Autumn that are hard to remove from its tangled woody growth.
