Hydrangea, Annabelle shrub

Hydrangea, Annabelle

Height - 3-5'
Width - 3-5'
Bloom Time - Summer
Bloom Color - White
Exposure - Part sun-shade

This old fashioned Hydrangea is a classic that still works in the landscape. Blooms start green, turn white, back to green, and then dry brown on the plant. How you prune it will determine how big of a plant you get and how big of blooms you'll have each year. The harsher you cut it, the larger the blooms will be. You can just remove spent blooms each spring, to keep bloom size manageable, and the plant taller. The more you cut off each year, the weaker the stems will be, making it hard for the plant to hold up the large blooms. This Hydrangea will spread by runners, but does not become invasive.

Building a mulched ring around the plant with chicken wire and filling it with leaves can help it survive in harsh winters. Requires a moist soil, especially during establishment. Fall leaf color is a rich mahogany. Exfoliating bark is ornamental as the plant matures. Rabbits do like Oakleaf Hydrangeas.

Exposure - Sun

This plant is very dense in habit and works well as a hedge or for privacy screen. There can be blue berries when a pollinator is planted nearby. Recommended variety is Chicago Lustre. I have observed very little fruit on mine here at RGF though, and I have a Chicago Lustre planted. I also push the limit on the amount of shade they are in, so don't get as great of flowers as I could if planted in more sun. That could be why there's less fruit.
