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.

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: Do light pruning only removing old flowers in the fall and pruning for shape in the winter. This hydrangea blooms on new wood so don't worry about cutting away the next season's flowers. We recommend leaving around 3-4 feet of older stems.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Annabelle Hydrangea Shrubs
Received the little dormant shrubs , Was not to impresses at the time but watered them put them on the Lani. They are now full of bright green leaves. I am enjoying watching their progress They are very healthy and a lot more fun than buying a large grown shrub for a very lot more money.I am enjoying the experience, while watering them daily I get to be involved in their growth. Thanks
Looking great so far!
I just received my Annabelle's 2 weeks ago and they arrived in great condition (despite being thrown around a bit by the carrier haha). I got them in the ground within 4 days and now all four of them are already sprouting leaves! I am excited to see how they continue to grow!
A stick for a plant
I ordered the plant in February. So it looks like a stick . If you are ordering deciduous plants, wait until April , so at least you know whether you are getting a live plant or a dead stick
We're sorry for your concerns! What you are seeing is normal for a hydrangea in Winter, but we do have the plant covered under our dormancy guarantee. Please reach out by the end of May if you have any concerns so we can get it replaced!
was great ..plant came well boxed and in really good shape..looked fresh and was planted right away..
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!
