Annabelle Hydrangea

Annabelle Hydrangea is a deciduous flowering shrub with white flower clusters.  This hydrangea shrub produces an abundant amount white puff-ball flowers.  The flowers of this plant can reach up to a foot in size.  The stems of the plant are sturdy and firm enough to hold up the heavily weighted flower balls.  After a heavy rain, you may notice some sagging of the flowers because of their substantial weight.

Annabelle Hydrangea blooms from summer all the way to fall.  This shrub needs at least five feet of growing space so that it does not become crowded.  Annabelle Hydrangea makes an excellent focal point when planted in long rows or hedges.  The abundant flower balls will draw quite a bit of attention to your property when the Hydrangea is planted in large quantities.

Pruning should be done when the plant is done flowering. If you prune before the plant flowers, it will reduce the blooms. Pruning during blooming will stress the plant. Late fall or winter is a great time to prune this summer bloomer.  This hydrangea can tolerate heavy pruning.
