What makes Rose Sensation different from other false hydrangea vines?
- Sepals are a beautiful marbelized rose-pink instead of the more conventional white
- Neat and tidy leaves are held to the vines by red stems
Name: Schizophragma hydrangeoides 'Minsens'
Hardiness: USDA zones 5-9
Height + width: 40-50'; width varies depending on structure and growth pattern.
Light: Full to part sun
Soil: Any well-drained soil will do.
Pruning: Pruning is rarely needed, though climbing hydrangeas may be selectively pruned to fill a specific space or to improve the habit. False hydrangea vines bloom on old wood, so trimming/cutting back will remove flower buds.
Water: Average water needs. Does not tolerate wet conditions.
Fertilizer: Fertilize once in early spring with a rose fertilizer if desired.
Bloom time: Early summer
Bloom color: Sterile florets are pink/rose, fertile florets in center are white.
Uses: False hydrangea vines must be grown on a structure, but almost anything will do. Growing up the trunks of trees is one of the most loveliest ways to enjoy them, but they cling equally well to manmade structures. Rose Sensation is unlikely to harm the trees or masonry it grows on, however, if you remove the plant, their dried old rootlets will cling to the surface for several years unless scrubbed off.

The plants are growing slowly but are staying healthy. I’m looking forward to their flowers I’m looking forward to their flowers in the next few years.
The vine arrived in a timely fashion and in great health! While I know it will not bloom this year, I have it in its permanent home with companion plants and it is thriving. I would order other plants from Great Garden Plants based on my first purchase. Keep the emails coming!
I purchased one of these last year. Shipping was prompt and I received a healthy plant in good condition. Happy with customer service. It has done well in it's planted location, with vines up to 5' long now. Unfortunately, it's been impossible to get it to climb up the brick/mortar wall, even with assistance. This is in contrast to a false hydrangea that I planted nearby. Within the 1st year, that had climbed several feet (and is now approaching my 3rd floor). I'm a bit disappointed that this plant prefers to hug the ground.
Was a bit leafy ordering on line but customer service was prompt and very accommodating. Plant arrived so healthy. Doing great do far will see next summer.
They are growing very quickly despite the interventions of a gardening dog who wants to transplant one of them! Can’t wait to see them bloom!
