Stately and vibrant in the border, they’ll blend beautifully with other herbaceous species and these unique ‘doubles’ in particular are also superb in large patio containers. And… with their diversity of colour and form there’s something for every planting scheme. With a delicate honey like scent they make wonderful cut flowers and as true hardy perennials they’ll reappear year after year getting bigger and stroner from summer to summer. Delivered as large ‘garden ready’ plants. Grow in a sunny spot as they love summer warmth. Varieties included: Southern Belle, Pineapple Sundae, Hot Papaya, Milkshake, Guava Ice, Marmalade

Tree Hydrangea Incrediball (Strong Annabelle) plant in 9cm pot

Tree Hydrangea Incrediball (Strong Annabelle) plant in 9cm pot £9.99
Hydrangea ‘Incrediball’ , the Tree Hydrangea, produces amazing and enormous colour-changing blooms that change from Lime Green to Pure White then fade to Green again, to make the most amazing displays in your garden and your home. It is unbelievable, but true! This is an entirely different species and variety than the traditional pink and blue plants you are probbaly more familiar with. The stems are incredibly strong to enable the support for this amazing flower, and they are tolerant of rain and wind hence the name, ‘Incrediball’!! This has been bred to supercede Hydrangea ‘Annabelle’, which suffered from weaker stems in wind and rain. Displays will be all Summer long whatever the weather and will produce flowers to up to 30cm or 12 inches in diameter. They can be cut and used as dried flowers too – this will preserve the natural colouration, or spray them gold or silver for spectacular Christmas decorations. For real Summer imapct in your garden, the Tree Hydrangea ‘Incrediball’ is a winner.
