Residents of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands have recently “tamed” a flowering plant in their gardens. It is believed that the stalked hydrangea can grow in any Russian gardens, as it tolerates droughts and frosts well.
In the wild, it is found in coniferous forests; it covers the trunks of spruce trees with its flowering stem. How does she do it? Hortensia consists not only of a strong, curving stem, but also allows for its growth adventitious aerial roots, which provide it with food and allow it to grow by 25 meters, or even more.

For seed cultivation, they should be planted in a pot with well-fertilized soil in the autumn, and in spring, young growths are transplanted into the ground (on the plot).
Scions grow better and more actively. You just need to cut off the most juicy green cuttings, on which one internode is located. For propagation, cuttings from 9-10 cm in length, but not more than 15 cm, are suitable. The rooted plant at first should be watered 3-5 times a day, covered from direct sun. Planting in open ground is carried out in April or May.

Choose sunny, open places with regularly irrigated, but not over-wetted soil. The soil should not be acidic, it is advisable to add peat. Calcareous soils are not at all suitable for growing hydrangeas. In the shade, the hydrangea will also grow, but its development will be slower, and it will bloom in small, rare flowers.
The stemmed hydrangea is a frost-resistant perennial species. The weather conditions and the temperature regime of the middle zone are very comfortable for her.
Garden designers often plant blooming vines in rock arias on an alpine hill. She, like a carpet, will cover the right places and create a pleasant appearance, even large boulders. A flower can be a good solution for decorating a large flower bed.
