Hydrangea Annabelle 5 Litre: One of the loveliest white flowering hydrangeas, this variety produces large globes of tightly packed creamy white flowers from late summer. As the season progresses the flower heads begin to fade to pale lime green, followed by dark green. Growth habit is more upright than other hydrangea varieties so a good choice to create a centrepeice planted among other lower flowering hydrangea plants. Flower heads can easily be dried so also a good option for flower arrangements

What to expect: Your plant will arrive in a 5 litre pot. Height and foliage will vary depending on the time of year purchased. The pictures were taken May, if purchased out of season ( Novemeber to April)  the plant will be considerably smaller.

Planting position: Best planted in a lightly shaded warm spot, never close to a tree. Tree roots are the dominant force and will deprive your hydrangea of the nutrition it needs

Suitable for container planting: Yes a great choice

Position: Full sun through to partial shade.

Soil: Happy in all soil types excluding heavy clay

Eventual Height at maturity: Upto 2.5 metres with a similar spread.

Flowering Period: Late summer through autumn

Winter Hardy: Yes. However be aware whilst extreme frosts will not be fatal it may damage the buds this will almost certainly result in smaller flowers, whilst this isnt relevant to plants that are going to live in the south it may be advisable to wrap in a winter fleece in the colder parts of the Uk.

Evergreen: No Deciduous

Pruning: Cut your Hydrangea back to a strong pair of buds in early spring after the frosts have cleared, can be cut earlier if  planted in a pot and can be sheltered from the worse of the winter weather.

Hydrangea plants do not like to dry out. In dry weather thouroughly soak the roots with a hose or watering can. If the plant is accidentally allowed to dry give the roots a good soaking and the plant will usually recover. Remove faded flowerheads in spring once we have passed the worst of winter weather, cut back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds. remove any misplaced or diseased shoots. Mulch young plants with a well-rotted manure or compost in spring. Once established, remove a quarter to a third of the shoots to the base of the plant
