A plant with size and purpose

Putting on an outstanding show of gigantic flowers, the Annabelle Hydrangea is well worthy of the spot in your landscape that says 'look at me'.

With blooms the size of softballs, this ornamental shrub is not your typical hydrangea.

Climbing to dramatic heights of 5 feet, its flowers are the biggest and most noticeable among the species.

Blooms for the Ages
The Annabelle's countless, soft white petals make an awesome display against the green leaves and sturdy stems that support its massive flower heads. The good news is, their beauty begins in June and will grace your garden with showers of elegant bouquets all summer long.

Late in the season the whole process starts again with a second bloom that will make it feel like summer's just beginning.

With low maintenance and unrivaled beauty, don't let another summer go by without planting Annabelle Hydrangeas in your garden.

Lovely Plant
This plant was delivered on time and as described. I'm glad I purchased the root rocket packet as the ground soil is not the best for new plants to establish quickly. I've had the plant for a month and it's already beginning to bloom.

Way to stressed and to much work to replace
They're going to have to replace 5 of the ones I ordered and I called to tell them they were way stressed when they got here. I was told I have to called 45 days after order if they eventually fail and within a week of when I ordered them to be able to call within the 45 day. 5 are twigs. The others are gorgeous. We own a landscaping company so when I said they were too stressed they should have sent out the 5.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Annabelle Hydrangea

Annabelle Hydrangea Planting Diretions

Very easy to grow, and requires little maintenance. You can grow it in most any soil – clay, dry soil, wet soil, shallow-rocky soil – but it will need consistent moisture, especially during drought, to support those huge blooms and lush foliage. Adding compost to your hole and mulching will help keep it moist. Best in part shade, though it is happy with morning sun in the north. Other than removing dead wood or weak stems in spring, Annabelle doesn’t have to be pruned; however, many people cut the stems back to the ground in late winter each year to promote new, blooming stem growth and to revitalize the plant. If your stems want to bend over, you can cut them back to 18 inches each year, rather than to the ground, so the bottom of each stem is stronger wood.

how far apart should these be planted?
Cari S on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: For a hedge I would plant them about 5 ft apart.
how do you care for them. Do you cut them back in the fall or what?
Martin N on May 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Fertilize your hydrangeas once or twice in the summer prior to August. Apply a good time release fertilizer 1-2 times a year. Fertilize in zones 6-8 in May and July. If you live in zones 5 or north, one good fertilizing in June will suffice. Discontinue fertilizing if the plant appears wilted or unhealthy. Restore the Hydrangea back to health before any additional applications.
To increase the amount of blooms make sure you are properly pruning and removing old canes. Prune in the spring to remove dead tips from winter.
Don’t plant Hydrangeas under trees which will compete for their nutrients.
Will they change colors ?
Robert W on Jun 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Annabelle Hydrangea will not change color.
Which is better choice for long blooming period: Annabelle or Endless Summer? I'm in Virginia Beach. Thanks!
Hope W on Aug 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Annabelle has great huge blooms all summer, but in its first year the overall size has not grown much
I am in Zone 7; when do you plant this tree?
Janice A on Mar 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: With extra care you can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.
what is the least and most sun this plant can take per day? And how far away from the house should it be planted?
Deb J on Sep 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the zone you are in. The hotter the zone the more shade you will want or will need to water more i believe. We live outside Chicago and ours are in the sun most of the day and do just fine. Ours are away from the house but you can have them pretty close if you need to. I would leave at least three to five feet to allow for growth
Will this beauty climb?
Hottena on Jul 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Annabelle Hydrangea is not a climbing Hydrangea.
