This comely garden setting in this small home's backyard shows how careful planning can produce an outstanding design. K&D Landscape Management used unusual wood fencing material for the pergola and to line the perimeter of the yard and added colorful small and large scale plants for balance and interest. A well-conceived lighting plan, as seen here, produces a dramatic effect.
False hydrangea earns its name because it unfurls flowers that resemble lacecap hydrangea blooms. This variety is sold as Rose Sensation (Schizophragma hydrangeoides ‘Minsens’) because the large petals (actually known as tepals) offer a deep, rose pink. Flowers appear in June and July. False hydrangea vine is a good choice for a part sun to part shade location—it’s often used in a woodland garden setting or north-facing garden. It’s a vigorous vine that’s well suited for trailing across a pergola or blanketing an arch with color. Vines grow 40 to 50 feet high and 6 to 9 feet wide. Hardy in Zones 5-9.
