Hydrangea arborescens 'Annabelle'

It's all about the flowers with this stunning performer. Mammoth blooms of up to one foot in diameter last from June to September and actually get larger as the season progresses on this old fashioned, durable favorite. 'Annabelle' was discovered in one lucky garden in Anna, Illinois, and for flower size, duration and durability this arborescens eclipses all others. In fact, the blooms are so colossal that the stems may not always be up to the task of supporting them so it's best to plant 'Annabelle' en masse for support or to add a support cage and to prune less vigorously to encourage stronger stems. 'Annabelle' thrives in almost any well-drained garden soil and will grow and flower well in full sun with plenty of moisture or partial shade. Make sure you cut some blooms for drying, too!

Growing Tips

Grows well in a partially shaded location with average, well-drained soil. Annabelle can be grown in full sun but must have consistent moisture. Intolerant of drought, the foliage will decline in dry conditions. It can be used in a rain garden. Because smooth hydrangeas bloom on new wood the entire plant can be pruned back to the ground in late winter.

Sun Exposure: Full Sun, Partial Sun
