Special Attributes

A native of southern Mississippi, 'Annabelle' is a smooth hydrangea variety that produces much larger flowers than the species. During summer, HUGE rounded flower clusters of  8 to 12 inches in diameter nearly cover the rounded shrub which typically grows in a rounded mound 3 to 5 feet tall and wide. Sometimes there's a small rebloom in fall. The white flowers stand out brilliantly against dark green foliage consisting of large, 4 to 8 inch long serrated leaves.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 3 to 5 feet tall and wide and producing abundant flowers during summer, the Annabelle Hydrangea is ideal as an accent or small groupings in foundation plantings. It is very impressive in mass or as a hedge in landscape and woodland borders and right at home native gardens, white color theme gardens and cottage gtardens.

Spacing:  3-4' for solid hedges; 8' or more for space between plants



Cultural Preferences

Annabelle Hydrangea is very easy to grow. It adapts well to most any average garden soil, preferring moist but well drained conditions. Does not like the soil to dry out completely for too long. so provide supplemental water during prolonged summer drought. As with so many other ornamental shrubs, constantly wet soil can cause problems with the roots. It will grow in full sun in northern zones provided soil remains consistently moist, but will appreciate some afternoon shade or filtered sun in the South. Does not require pruning but responds well to it for shaping and size control. During a harsh northern winter, plants may die back to the ground. Since it blooms on new wood, this die-back won't effect bloom. Simply prune back to the ground. Smooth hydrangeas produce much larger blooms when pruned to the ground. Best if pruned in late winter or very early spring.

Note:  Annabelle is a Hydrangea arborescens (Smooth Hydrangea) that produces its flowers from buds on new wood the current years growth).
