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.

Order yours today.

Very disappointed. One small green leaf that isn’t growing. My husband calls it a Charlie Brown plant

Arrived beat up and straggly. It does have flowers but they are having a tough time as the plant is leggy and sparse. I imagine when I can cut back the growth to allow it to even out and gain health it might do better.

I love my Annabelles!
I couldn’t be happier! The plants came very swiftly, they were very strong, and they bloomed very soon. They are beautiful and I’m thinking of getting some more. A wonderful addition to my garden. Highly recommend!

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.

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.

I needed some white in my backyard so selected the Annabelle Hydrangea. If it performs as the Endless Summer Hydrangea does, I'll be one happy gardener.

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.
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.
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. Mines has bloomed for months
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.
Does deer avoid the Annabelle hydrangea?
maya a on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I haven’t had a problem. But right now there are no deers where I live.
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.
I have an enclosed bricked flower bed attached to my home. One section I would say measures, maybe 6ft width x 11ft length. Is it possible that my plant's root may grow length wise if a circumference of at least 5ft isn't available? My flower bed in total measures 4.5 width x 32 length. Also, can I plant in the first week of August?
