Your eyes do not deceive you -- the flowers really are more than a foot long and perfectly round on this stunning new Hydrangea! A new selection of a native species, this is without a doubt the largest-flowered mophead type in the world, its blooms approaching the size of beachballs!

Incrediball® arose, like so many great inventions, as an accident -- it was part of a breeding program designed to improve the stem strength of native Hydrangea varieties, so that the blooms would stand up rather than flopping. Well, it worked -- but who could have imagined the blooms would emerge so enormous and so packed with florets? It is descended from 'Annabelle,' a beloved favorite for decades, but each of Incrediball's® flowerheads contains 4 TIMES THE NUMBER OF BLOOMS as Annabelle's. It's simply amazing.

The blooms open a very pale shade of green to cream, maturing to pure white. Like most Hydrangeas, they begin blooming when the warm summer weather arrives, and continue all season, often generously extending into fall. Cut the blooms for fresh or dried arrangements; they last for months indoors, their petals acquiring a lovely papery texture.

Incrediball® reaches 4 to 5 feet high and wide in sun (in the north) to partial shade (farther south). A moisture lover, it should receive regular watering to grow and bloom its best. You will find it easy to grow, eager to bloom, and breathtaking in the foundation, as a hedge, or in the border. Zones 4-9.

Looks Good!

I bought Indrediball and planted in the Fall 18 months ago. I planted next to my front door. It did not bloom the first Summer but has bloomed this Summer and it does looks attractive. I have 8 nice sized blooms, however none are the size of basketballs. It is at least 4 feet tall. It gets West NorthWest exposure. We had a very strong storm come through the other night. The stems were leaning but none broke. The stems recovered within 24 hours. I am happy with my purchase. I would recommend this plant.
