America's favorite for old-fashioned elegance!

As the season progresses, these snowball-shaped flowerheads keep getting bigger and bigger!
Discovered in an Anna, Illinois, garden, 'Annabelle' is perhaps the most popular old-fashioned flowering shrub grown in American gardens. Once established, it produces enormous, 12-inch, globe-shaped flowerheads of snowy white starting in early summer and increasing in size until mid- to late summer -- truly spectacular!

Growing to 4 feet high and wide, it is a splendid landscape plant that never gets out of bounds and complements every other color in the garden beautifully. It thrives in shade, but also tolerates heat and humidity. Very easy to grow once established, it is a lovely source of fresh and dried arrangements as well as a useful border, hedge, foundation, or accent planting.

H. arborescens is a native species, far more cold-hardy than most other Hydrangea species. Recently another cultivar has been added to the family: spectacular pink-flowered Invincibelle Spirit. Try them together for a breathtaking pink-and-white hedge, border, or accent planting! Zones 4-9.

Super, Easy, Dependable, and Floriferous!
Gardener Zone 6 from wrote (October 30, 2012):
This hydrangea is easy to care for and has huge flowers (They get larger each year as the plant ages!) They are great as cut flowers and can even be dried. Unlike other hydrangeas they can be pruned anytime and always grow back beautifully. They maintain a great size. The white blooms of this adaptable shrub glow in the spring and summer garden. I have bought several over the years and am very happy. This is a must-have hydrangea!
Annabells-the best carefree show-stoppers ever!!

I planted 2 Annabells on the east side of my home where it is was very boring and plain. Even before they were fully established, my neighbors on the east were ranting and raving how beautiful they were and thanked me for their view! Awesome at cut flowers also. They keep for weeks.
