The Annabelle Hydrangea is a hardy shrub that displays stunning white blossoms that can reach 12” in diameter. The Annabelle is one of the oldest flowering shrubs that can be found in an American garden! Don’t miss out on a classic shrub that will continue to bloom year after year.

Enjoy continuous flower cuttings right from your own yard! As your hydrangea blooms, take cuttings and make your own flower arrangements indoors!

The Annabelle typically grows 3-5 feet tall. Clusters of dazzling white flowers form in huge rounded heads called corymbs that can reach a diameter of 12.” Wow! Those are some pretty large flower heads. The flowers are produced in the summer months and will re-bloom during fall. That’s double the bloom time. It prefers partial shade but will tolerate heat. Once the Annabelle Hydrangea is established, it is easy to grow.

Annabelle Hydrangea FAQ

When Should I Prune This Hydrangea?

You don’t need to prune hydrangeas, but pruning lightly after they are done blooming can help encourage a bushier growth and renew an older plant. This hydrangea grows on new wood so you can prune more heavily in the dormant season.

How To Propagate Annabelle Hydrangea

Propagate your Hydrangea from hardwood cuttings in spring to late summer. Cut a 3-5" section and remove all the leaves under the top node. Dip your cutting in a rooting hormone and plant in soil mix. Keep well watered until the root system is established in 4-6 weeks.

Where Should I Plant This Shrub?

Pick a spot that has well drained soil with full sun to part shade in grow zones 4-9. Space 3-4 feet apart to accomodate a 4-6 foot spread.

Caring for Annabelle Hydrangea

When planting your Annabelle Hydrangea be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plants to thrive. Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant Hydrangeas. Avoid planting hydrangeas in summer when temperatures are mid80s or higher.

The Annabelle Hydrangea requires full sun to part shade and prefers moist, well-drained, fertile soil. In hot climates, hydrangeas will do best with some shade. This variety's color is not affected by soil pH. Keep the soil moist, but not saturated, especially in summer and in the first year after planting. Throughout its life Hydrangeas will do best with a deep watering once weekly during hot temperatures. Mulching at about 3 inches deep is highly recommended for hydrangeas. Mulching will cut back on watering needs and protect your plant in extreme temperatures. Choose a slow release fertilizer for flowering plants. Fertilize once in spring after the last chance of frost and again in early summer for best results. You don’t need to prune hydrangeas, but pruning lightly after they are done blooming can help encourage a bushier growth and renew an older plant. This hydrangea grows on new wood so you can prune more heavily in the dormant season.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. You can treat mites, scale, whiteflies, and aphids naturally with neem oil or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Fungal infection can be prevented by making sure the planting site has good drainage and by avoiding overhead watering. Fungal infections can be treated with a fungicide. Generally, treating fungus after infection isn't effective so if you have problems with other plants or in a prior year, treat preventatively in early spring.

Landscape ideas
Annabelle Hydrangeas look great when used as a summer time hedge or even in a woodland garden. The bright white color of the blossoms and rounded bushy shape makes this shrub a great backdrop for perennials. The Annabelle Hydrangea is a great landscape shrub that never gets overwhelming and compliments every color in the garden beautifully. Try mixing the Annabelle Hydrangea with the Pennymac or Nikko Blue Hydrangea to provide great color combinations.
