Invincibelle Spirit II Hydrangea
- Growth Habit
An improved version of the original pink 'Annabelle' hydrangea. Invincibelle Spirit II Hydrangea represents the best in full-sized pink 'Annabelle' hydrangeas. It offers handsome, dark green foliage, sturdy, strong stems that prevent flopping, and large round blooms of deep pink that age to an attractive green. Plus, it re-blooms, delivering waves of fresh flowers through autumn. This North American native hydrangea grows over a huge range of the US and Canada, thriving in chilly USDA zone 3 as well as in steamy zone 8.
Mounded; deciduous. Height & width at maturity is between 42-48".
Four hours of full sun for best flower color and stem strength. Invincibelle Spirit II hydrangea can grow in full sun in cooler climates, but afternoon shade is recommended in hot areas. In all areas, a good 2-3" (5-7 cm) layer of shredded bark mulch is recommended to keep the roots cool and growing vigorously. Prune Invincibelle Spirit II, and all smooth hydrangeas, in early spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge. Cut the whole plant back by about one-third its total height (it blooms on new wood). If you wish, you may prune in fall, once the plant has gone completely dormant. Deadheading - removing the spent flowers - is not necessary for this plant to continue to bloom. However, you may remove old flowers if you wish. And by all means, cut stems to enjoy indoors - they make a great cut flower and won't be harmed by cutting.
Dogs or cats that consume enough hydrangea leaves, flowers and/or buds can suffer from vomiting and diarrhea. In severe cases, hydrangea poisoning can cause lethargy, depression and confusion.
Three gallon shrubs are not available for shipment from online orders.
