The biggest thing to happen to hydrangeas happens to be tiny!

Invincibelle Wee White® hydrangea is positively ground-breaking: it's the first dwarf 'Annabelle' type hydrangea in the world! This cute little landscape plant ensures that any landscape can enjoy the reliability, low-maintenance, and season-long beauty of hydrangeas. It reaches just 1-2.5' tall and naturally grows as a tidy, rounded mound. Each pure-white flower is held up on a strong, supportive stem for a display that looks more like a bouquet of flowers than a landscape plant. Blooming begins in early summer and continues through frost, with new flowers appearing the whole time. Versatile and floriferous, it just might be the solution to your landscape problems. Winner of the 2018 Direct Gardening Association Green Thumb award; available in better garden centers in spring 2018. Continuous blooming. Long blooming. Blooms on new wood from summer through fall. Deadheading not necessary. Native to North America.

Maintenance Notes:
We recommend a minimum of six hours of bright sun for all smooth hydrangeas like Invincibelle Wee White. Sun ensures the strongest stems and the most blooms. In hot climates, afternoon shade is a good idea, but some sun is still imperative for best performance.

Pruning is very simple for Invincibelle Wee White hydrangea: just cut the whole plant back by about one-third its total height each spring, just as the new growth begins to appear on the stems. This serves to preserve the woody base while encouraging new growth for maximum blooms.

A 2-3" thick layer of shredded bark mulch is smart for all hydrangeas, which tend to have shallow roots. If desired, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.

Fun Facts:
Smooth hydrangeas like Invincibelle Wee White are native to much of southeastern and central North America - you may even find one on a hike, though it won't look like the showy mophead varieties we grow in our gardens.
