Hydrangea Arborescens 'Annabelle' In 2L Pot, Stunning Large Flower Heads


Hydrangea Arborescens 'Annabelle' In 2L Pot, Stunning Large Flower Heads

The basics species of this large bushy North American shrub has flowers that are a mixture of tiny fertile florets and the larger more showy sterile ones, which in fact have coloured bracts in place of petals.

Growing Details:

Common Name: Hydrangea
Genus: Hydrangea
Species: arborescens
Cultivar: 'Annabelle'
Skill Level: Experienced
Exposure: Full sun, Partial shade
Hardiness: Hardy
Soil type: Well-drained/light, Clay/heavy
Height: 300cm
Spread: 300cm


The variety 'Annabelle' has only sterile florets, which makes the flower heads much larger, like spectacular white balls up to 30cm (12in) across. Plants are nominally very hardy but late frosts can damage the buds, so grow them in a sheltered corner or against a warm wall in cold gardens. Regular pruning keeps the naturally open plants dense and compact.

Please note, due to soft leaves, the Annabelles can become shabby during transit. Do not be alarmed, once they become established they will soon perk up again.

Weather can influence the color of hydrangea leaves, causing large areas of purple discoloration. Cool weather near the end of the growing season may trigger the plant’s dormancy early, allowing the purple leaf color to show through as the green chlorophyll factories shut down for the season.

    Ordered two Annabelle Hydrangea and they arrived very promptly but one was damaged in the post. - Contacted Beechwood Nurseries and they sent a replacement out by return.
    I can’t recommend them enough because the service and aftercare was excellent!
