Uses Notes: Landscapes, naturalizing, perennial gardens. Also makes a very dramatic cut flower.
Maintenance Notes: Prune back by one-third its total height in early spring to encourage strong new growth and flowering. Do not cut it back to the ground! Flower color is not affected by soil pH. Best in moist, well drained soil but adapts to most sites. Avoid excessive and high nitrogen fertilizers – one application of a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants (like a rose fertilizer) is sufficient for the year.

Super-sized flowers!

This stunning hydrangea is a bit of a prodigy.  We were looking for a hydrangea like the old favorite ‘Annabelle’, but one that wouldn’t flop over.  We found it…and it had supersized blooms, too!

This adaptable native plant produces huge flowers (as much as 12″ across) and is both reliable and beautiful. Flowers open green, then mature to white before turning green at the end of their life cycle. Very cold hardy, Incrediball blooms on new growth so even very cold winters won’t keep it from blooming. The flowers are held upright on very sturdy stems, so they don’t flop like ‘Annabelle’ will.
