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.

Fresh Upon Delivery
Our hydrangeas were delivered on the day promised, in sturdy packaging, and in very good shape. The plants quickly acclimated the fresh air and water.
Wonderful and timely delivery
Kansas- Came looking like sticks with a nice rooting system. Put them in the ground early April... 2 weeks in the ground and they are happily budding. They are going to do very well. Excited to watch them grow!
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.
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.
