Beautiful north American Hydrangea with very attractive large heads heads of creamy white bracts that look like huge snowballs from the Summer into Autumn when they turn green and stay beautifully erect through the winter months after drying gracefully.

Annabelle does not like drought, it does not thrive in very dry conditions. In case of short dry spells, make sure it is watered abundantly or the heads will flop.
