Description
Growing 3 to 5 feet tall, much-loved hydrangea Annabelle blooms with dense snow-white flower heads up to 10 inches across. This one is a separate species from the pink and blue types, and many think it is the best landscape plant.

About Hydrangeas: These popular shrubs, also called Hortensia, all have rounded flower clusters that persist through summer and fall. There are several types, since there are several species of the plant the hybridizers work with:
H. macrophylla or French Hydrangeas. These, the most popular, form non-rangy, attractive shrubs about 4 to 6 ft. tall, and are famed for their big, colorful ball-like flowers, usually blue or pink. The popular group here is called Mophead hydrangeas. Artificially shortened versions are sold in pots on Easter and Mothers Day, and the blooms are florists favorites, always popular for wedding decorations. In addition to the mopheads (solid ball of flowers), there are also lacecap versions of these hydrangeas. (H. macrophylla is native to the Far East.)
H. arborescens, a US native, includes the widely-planted, Annabelle. Much like the Mopheads, Annabelle is a shorter hydrangea with huge rounded flower clusters in pure white. This is the one famous for flowers so large they often weigh down the branches, needing special support.
H. paniculata, is a larger species, much taller than the Mopheads. The flower clusters are more cone-shaped, rather than round. The plant in this group is more rangy than the shorter types, but can be controlled by pruning. The famous Pee Gee hydrangea, often grown as a small tree is in this group, and was imported from Japan in the late 19th century. There are also newer H. paniculata hybrids, including the beautiful greenish-flowered one called Limelight.
Other Types: There are several other important hydrangeas. The tall native Oakleaf hydrangea (sometimes considered a small tree) is also a variety of the species, H. paniculata.

        Annabelle

        By Nancy Benny

        from Seattle, WA

        Pros

          Cons

          • After Arrival
          • It Died In Several Days
          • It Was A Tiny Stick

          Best Uses

            it was a little stick and died in several days after arrival. I went to a local nursery and bought an established plant, which obviously cost more, but it was worth it.

                  Planted hydrangea in a new flower bed, and it has grown and performed beautifully. Looking forward to how it performs next year.

                  Hydrangea makes a Statement

                  By GRANDMA

                  from LAKELAND, FLORIDA

                  Pros

                  • Center Piece Or Backdrop
                  • Easy To Grow And Tame
                  • Fast Growing And Lush
                  • Long lasting blooms
                  • Loves Sun Or Shade

                  Cons

                    Best Uses

                    • Can Be Trimmed To Suit
                    • Easy To Clip And Re-pot
                    • Fills In Bare Spots

                    I HAVE ONE IN THE FRONT GARDEN AS AN ACCENT AND SHOW PIECE. THERE ARE TWO IN THE BACK GARDEN TO SURROUND THE A/C UNIT. SINCE THEY LOVE VENTILATION, THIS IS GOOD FOR ME AND THE PLANT. IT GROWS LUSH AND HAS LARGE DARK GREEN LEAVES. GREW FROM A 4 INCH HIGH PLANT TO 2 FEET TALL IN TWO MONTHS. HEALTHY PLANTS! EASY TO FERTILIZE AND IN-EXPENSIVE SULFUR IS THE BEST. E-MAILED QUESTION AND WAS ANSWERED RIGHT AWAY. SO HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY!!!

                      • Died
                      • Ordered Twice Both Died

                      Best Uses

                        Plants arrived in separate shipments. Both seemed healthy. Planted them in recommended area per instructions. Both plants started to die back immediately.
