Massive pink blooms are held up on top of sturdy stems. You can rely on this Annabelle-type hydrangea to bloom every year. Long-lasting flowers provide colour for many months. Bright green leaves are topped with large bluish pink blooms that change to green with age. Blooms on new growth. Ideal addition to the summer garden. Use as a single specimen or plant in groups of 3-5 for mass effect.
Key to Success: Prune back hard in early spring if necessary. Use triple mix and liquid transplanter fertilizer for planting success.
