Maintenance Notes:

Smooth hydrangeas, also known as ‘Annabelle’ hydrangeas, are some of the easiest and most reliable types you can grow, especially if you live in a cold climate. Caring for them is simple: in early spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge on the stems, cut the plant back by about one-third its height. That’s it! If you wish, you can apply a granular fertilizer formulated for flowering shrubs, like a rose fertilizer.

The largest blooms develop after the plant has become established – typically about 3 years after planting. The plant will bloom before this, but they won’t start reaching their maximum size until they have developed a good root system.

Smooth hydrangeas like Incrediball Blush can grow in full sun in cooler climates – a minimum of 6 hours a day ensures the strongest stems, the biggest blooms, and the best flower color. However, the warmer your climate, the more shade they can take; afternoon shade is particularly beneficial in these areas.

Don’t hesitate to harvest flowers to enjoy in a vase or dry for craft projects – this reblooming hydrangea will simply create more!
