Schizophragma elliptifolium 'MonLaBaHe'

Item 7576


There are very few rules in gardening, but perhaps the most important one is to work within your zone. Choosing plants that grow and thrive in your particular climate is the very first step toward having a beautiful garden. Learn more >

USDA Zone:
This plant will grow in my zone:
  • Light Needs
    Filtered sun, Full shade, Partial shade, Partial sun
  • Watering Needs
    Water regularly - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.

This extremely rare selection makes a dramatic statement by virtue of its foliage alone. Varnished-red new growth is stunning in spring, and large, lacecap-like cream-colored flowers are beautiful in contrast. Self-clinging stems will gently climb a fence, arbor, or large tree trunk, creating a handsome display in a shaded garden setting. Deciduous.

The genus name Schizophragma comes from the Greek for "divided wall", referring to the split walls of its fruiting structure. The cultivar name of this selection, 'LaBaHe', refers to the name of the village near where the original seed was collected. Schizophragma species are in the Hydrangea family. While their flower showy flower heads somewhat resemble that of lacecap hydrangeas and they are superficially close to the climbing hydrangeas, the flowers of Schizophragma can offer a greater presence to the shaded garden.
