Large Blooms All Summer

Why Annabelle Hydrangea Shrubs?

Putting on an outstanding show of gigantic flowers, the Annabelle Hydrangea is well worthy of any location in your landscape. In fact, it's got huge blooms the size of softballs, creating a one-of-a-kind ornamental look that's second to none.

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

Climbing to a manageable mature height yet producing show-stopping blooms, the Annabelle's flowers are the biggest and most noticeable among the species. The Annabelle's countless, soft white petals make an awesome display against the green leaves and sturdy stems that support its massive flower heads.

Annabelle's 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.

Why is Better

In addition to its carefree growth, evergreen foliage, and versatility, you get a promise: The best start possible.

When you order your Annabelle from Fast Growing Trees, you get a well-rooted, healthy shrub in its own pot. The Annabelle is hard to find at big-box garden centers...and if you do find an Annabelle, it may be bare-root.

But your Annabelle Hydrangea from our nursery is planted and grown meticulously in nutrient-rich soil - we never ship bare-root, so you get tons of blooms year after year. With our bigger size, you can get blooms as soon as the first season!

Don't let another summer go by without planting Annabelle Hydrangeas in your garden. Get the unmatched beauty of the Annabelle for yourself today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Choose a location with morning sun and afternoon shade. If you live in zones 6 or lower, the more sun the better. Avoid planting your hydrangeas in a heavily shaded spot. Give your Hydrangeas plenty of room to grow.

When you're ready to plant, dig the planting hole 2 feet wider than the root ball and to a depth of the tip of the root ball. Set the Hydrangea in the hole, making sure it is not planted too deeply. Finally, water to settle the roots.

2. Watering: Give your Hydrangea an inch of water each week. This includes any rainfall. If you're not sure when and how much to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 2 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water until it's moist.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Hydrangeas once in the summer prior to August. Apply a good time-release fertilizer at this time, only one time during the year. Discontinue fertilizing if the plant appears wilted or unhealthy.

4. Pruning: Prune in the spring to remove dead tips from winter.

Tiny but mighty!

Received this little guy along with a mock orange tree and japanese lilac. Amazing how all fits so safe and nicely in 1 big box. All plants were kept fresh and water, very impressed! This hydrangea is tiny (i knew it would be, as I chose the small one), but strong and healthy looking! Cannot wait to update you all with how it goes!

Healthy Hydrangeas!

I wasn’t sure about purchasing from this company. I had never heard of it. Ordered several Annabelle Hydrangeas and they were well packaged and arrived looking quite green (no wilt-y ones)! I planted the next day and all of them have done very well (except for the one a raccoon dug up weeks later ...) but I am super impressed with these!! I paid double for these plants over another company I ordered from before which turned out to be worth it; the plants were a little more mature and arrived much healthier!! I am super pleased! Thank you!!

Time will Tell

06.19.22, I literally just planted my hydrangea today. I am in Georgia with very hard clay soil but I was able to dig and place this shrub. I’m hoping I don’t have to move it, it’s getting quite a bit of sun but mostly in the morning. The plant came healthy and there was one broken stem so I pulled it off. Fingers crossed.
