Hydrangea arborescens 'Annabelle' (Hydrangeaceae)
(hi-DRAN-gee-a ar-bo-RES-enz)
Smooth Hydrangea

2001 Gold Medal Winner, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. In early summer, magnificent globes of creamy blossoms hang in profusion on 4-5' plants. Especially wonderful in woodland gardens, where the big blooms of 'Annabelle' provide a welcome change in texture and color. One shrub can bring a shady corner of the garden to life, as blossoms first appear in subtle apple green, slowly transform to creamy white, and eventually fade to light brown. Prune lightly in late winter, as 'Annabelle' flowers on the current season's growth. Enjoys some morning sun and decent moisture. A Southern name for a wonderfully Southern summertime shrub, greatly beloved by our customers.
