If you're looking for a flower that will stop people in their tracks, Hydrangea Incrediball® is for you. It's an "incredible" improvement to our native Smooth Hydrangea, Hydrangea arborescens 'Annabelle'. Talk about a good shrub for the front garden, this one can stop traffic. But what makes this hydrangea an eye-popper is the enormous size of the white flower heads, up to 12 inches across - the biggest flowers ever seen on a hydrangea. And unlike 'Annabelle,' Incrediball won't flop to the ground after a summer downpour.

Since this is a relative of Annabelle and blooms on new wood, prune it back in late winter to encourage new growth and multiple flower buds. Incrediball® will be happy in a moist, well-drained spot. It can be located in sun in cool summer areas and part shade in the 90-100 degree F. summer Sunbelt. This versatile shrub will do well across North American, USDA Zones 3-9, from Edmonton, Canada to Texas.
