If you've seen voluptuous white hydrangea bushes as foundation plantings, accenting a beautiful home, odds are good it's Annabelle. This is one of the plants that helped launch the hydrangea craze and with good reason. Showy blooms appear in late spring or early summer and carry on right through the growing season and into fall. Happiest in part sun, this fast growing shrub matures to 4 to 5 feet tall and wide. Can handle heavy pruning in late winter to shape and is an excellent source of summer and fall cut flowers. Very easy care. Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
You've seen dried hydrangea blooms used in arrangements, in their natural state or spray painted gold, silver or white. This is a great variety for that! Harvest in early to mid-fall when flower heads are beginning to dry naturally and bring indoors. Best flower production is seen in plants sited where they receive at least a half day of direct sun.
