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 Hydrangea, 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 Hydrangea 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 Hydrangea, 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.

I purchased this hydrangea 18 months ago and planted in the Fall. I planted next to my front door. It gets West- Northwest sun exposure. The first year it did not bloom. It bloom this Summer. It has 8 nice sized blooms, though none are basketball sized. The lime green to white coloring is very pretty. The plant is at least 4 feet tall. We recently had a heavy rain storm with high winds and the stem did droop, but none broke. The stems recovered in 24 hours. I am keeping an eye out to see how long the flowers last. I would recommend this plant.
