More Information

Description Fresh flowers through autumn? An improvement on Invincibelle Spirit, Invincibelle Spirit II hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens), is the first 'Annabelle'-type hydrangea with pink flowers, and this improved version sets the bar even higher. Featuring stronger stems, richer color, and an improved reblooming habit, Invincibelle Spirit II is a show stopper in the garden. It looks great from its first blooms in summer and continues the show through fall. Gardeners everywhere, even those in cold climates, can enjoy the fantastic pink blooms of this hydrangea thanks to its hardy nature, you'll enjoy blooms every year no matter how bad the winter. As if this plant couldn't get any better, this overachiever of a hydrangea has supported the Breast Cancer Research Foundation with a dollar per plant donation and raised over one million dollars for life-saving research far. To help reach the next million, we here at Great Garden Plants are doubling the donation for every plant purchased through us - $2 instead of the normal $1!   Details Botanical name: Hydrangea arborescens 'NCHA1'
Patent #: USPP 28,316
Common name: Annabelle hydrangea, Smooth hydrangea, Native hydrangea
Zone: 3-8
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun), part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 3.5-4' tall x wide
Flower color: Pink
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Summer-fall
Uses: Background, foundation planting, hedge, massing, ornamental, specimen, cut flower, native plant gardens.
 
How To Grow Soil: Any average, well-drained soil will do. Avoid wet conditions. Can tolerate somewhat dry conditions but flowering may be compromised. A good 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch keeps roots cool and conserves moisture.
Light: Most varieties tolerate full sun in the north, but benefit from afternoon shade. Tolerates full sun only if grown with consistent moisture. In the South, plants require afternoon shade. If plants wilt frequently, that's a good indicator that the spot is a bit too sunny. If flower color is pale, or stems are weak, that indicates the site is a bit too shady.
Water: Water to keep soil moist, but not wet.
Spacing: 3.5 - 4 ft.
Fertilizing: Fertilize once in spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for roses.
Winterizing: Leave intact over winter and keep 2-3" mulch in place.
Maintenance & Pruning: This variety blooms on new wood. In late winter or early spring, cut stems back by about one-third their total height, which builds a strong woody base while also encouraging abundant new growth for lots of flowers and a lush, full look. Young plants may be transplanted when dormant in early spring if desired.

Time Will Tell . . .

I just placed an order for some more of this plant. We've had some on one side of our front porch for years and have loved them, they are very showy and have done great. Last year we decided to take out a different version of Hydrangea that was in front of the house and to replace them with these - the first ones I ordered (came in gallons) they arrived, looked great and have done well - in the fall we decided to add on some more, by then only the quart size was available, they arrived small, struggled and then every one died, one by one, side by side. So I'm ordering more to replace them and are hoping that these will be better and will work out better than the last batch did, if not I won't re-order them again.

Hello! We're sorry to hear that some of your hydrangeas died! Please email pictures of the plant to claims@greatgardenplants.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. Rest assured, we do have a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants. If you received your plants within that timeframe, we will be happy to apply your warranty once we receive the pictures. Happy Gardening!

Fail --- not once, but twice

Ordered some plants and specifically requested they be delivered after a certain date, because we were out of town. They arrived a week early and were dried out and useless. Contacted customer service and they promised to replace the order. They did, but crammed two plants in each container. The plants will not grow. I will never purchase anything from them, ever again.

Smooth hydrangea

The plants came bigger than I expected for 1 quart size. These plants have grown about 6 inches now. Our summer was unusually hot this year. The ones without afternoon shade didn’t grow as good as the plants in afternoon shade.

Small but healthy plants

I purchased two Invincibelle Spirit II hydrangeas in the quart size. Plants arrived healthy but small. They've been in the ground for about 6 weeks here in zone 7a and have almost doubled in size, now about 8-10 inches tall. No straggly branches or fallen leaves. I don't expect flowering until next summer. I've been giving the plants plenty of water. I fed with Espoma Bio-Tone when they were planted in mid-April. I plan to fertilize with Rose-Tone soon (early June). Overall I am happy with my purchase, just wish I could have afforded the more mature gallon size plants.

Fail

I was very surprised that this plant was such a fail. Last fall, I planted the Invincibelle Spirit II along with five other hydrangeas into a new big raised container bed. The other five are thriving but the Invincibelle did not leaf out. Sigh. Now I have a "hole" and whatever I put there will be a year behind the other hydrangeas.
