More Information

Description The refined, pure white flowers of ‘Annabelle' Smooth Hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens) look stunning in landscapes. The large, puffy blooms look like they're floating among the foliage. Even in cold climates, this hydrangea is a reliable bloomer! This cultivar was discovered in Anna, Illinois in the 1960s and has been a garden favorite ever since.  Gardeners love it for the old-fashioned charm! Summer storms tend to flop the flowers over, so pruning can help build stronger stems. Insider tip: newer hydrangeas in the Invincibelle® and Incrediball® series offer improvements over this classic with stronger stems, colorful blooms, and reblooming ability. Details Botanical name: Hydrangea arborescens 'Annabelle'
Common name: Smooth hydrangea, annabelle hydrangea, snowball hydrangea, wild sevenbark, hills of snow hydrangea
Zone: 3 - 8
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours), Part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 4' x 5'
Flower color: White
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Summer
Uses: Background, foundation planting, hedge, massing, ornamental, specimen
How To Grow Soil: Average, well-drained soil is best. Shallow rooted hydrangeas benefit from 2-3" of mulch.
Light: Part-sun (4-6 hours sun). They enjoy morning sun and afternoon shade. Tolerates full sun only if grown with consistent moisture.
Water: Water to keep the soil moist, but not wet.  Not considered drought tolerant, so don't let them dry out!
Spacing: 4 - 6 feet
Fertilizing: Generally not required, but can be fertilized in early spring if desired.
Winterizing: No special care is required. Mulch is beneficial.
Maintenance & pruning: Blooms on new wood. We recommend cutting back by just one-third the total height in the spring when new growth is emerging. This will help develop sturdy stems. Don't cut it back entirely to the ground!

Dead unfortunately

It is dead after a winter. Not sure if the one-quart plant was too weak or what.
I am living in zone 5.
All my other hydrangea are sprouting, but this one has no response.

Hi Samantha, We're sorry to hear that one of your plants hasn't sprung back this spring. From your images, it looks like you kept your hydrangea in its original nursery pot. We never recommend keeping our one quart plants in their nursery pots over winter as it provides little insulation. In zone 5 winters, it may have froze. It looks like your plants are no longer covered by our 60-day warranty, but we saw the you've already talked with our customer service team to find a solution. Hope you enjoy the rest of your plants, Happy Gardening!

Just arrived

Normally, I wait to see the performance of a plant bedore leaving a review but, I was so impressed with the packaging of these quart plants I felt compelled. Arrived a bit on the thirsty side but, after 8 August days and all the way across the country, they're in beautiful shape and nothing a day at the spa won't cure.

Hydrangeas

Plants were shipped really fast and arrived in good condition. Plants were nice size and very healthy. They are now thriving in my garden.

Great Quality and Value

Plant has flourished in a minimally prepped environment heavy in clay. We replaced Indian Hawthorn shrubs that sub normal cold winter temps killed. The removal of these was the only bed prep we did and the Annabelle Hydrangea has flourished in its new home.

Arrived healthy. Planted. Awaiting years of huge white blooms.
