Annabelle Hydrangeas are easy to grow and the blooms get to an incredible size. They start out a beautiful creamy white and as they age they take on a green tinge and then go to brown. They are easy to use as a dried arrangement by taking some cuttings and put them in a vase with just a teensy of water. The water will evaporate but the flower head will stay just perfect.
This hydrangea is one I planted last fall. It stands only about a ft tall. It is called ‘little lime’. At the moment the petals are turning the most gorgeous shades of creamy white, green and pink.
This hydrangea is called ‘’Pink Diamond’ and at this time of the year the blooms go a lovely pink colour. I started another hydrangea this year called ‘Pinky Winky’ and the flowers have the same shade. I have an ‘Incrediball’ hydrangea at the front of the house and it put on some growth this year and some lovely blooms but it has a ways to go to outdo ‘Annabelle’.
I am joining Mary’s Mosaic Monday. Come over an visit us there. Valerie
