Re: need a plant recomendation

Donna - not Bonnie, but FWIW.  With climbing hydrangeas you have to
have a lot of patience.  They are very slow to get off the mark. 
Once they do establish, they grow fairly rapidly, but you can wait a
long time for blooms.  Seems to me mine took about 5 or 6 years or
more - and didn't actually bloom until I had a discussion with it
about compost heaps.  Now (after 15 years or so) it's about 15' up
what I had thought was a dead locust I'd had topped (it lives; you
can't kill those durn trees) and branched out 4 or 5 feet  - lovely
vine, but it needs patience:-)
