Update for April 2010 and you can read the original post below. All my ‘Incrediball’ hydrangeas are leafing out stronger than last year. Some have formed buds already. I’ll post when it HAPPENS. The buds are about 2 inches across right now–but this is going to be a huge event don’t you think. I mean look at those blooms!!
***, First posted in 2009—-This hydrangea is on my must have list. You know there is a want list and then a must have—well this is a must have!
With 12″ blooms, it’s incredible. It’s a Proven Winners variety. It blooms on new wood so the blooms are not going to get nipped by the cold. I’m looking forward to growing it and seeing people’s reaction. Incrediball has very strong stems and will not droop or break under the weight of the blooms.
*****Starting this week…May 23, 2010. I’m doing a series of post on this shrub blooming in my garden. HERE.. and HERE are posts of what the blooms look like today/this month. Please join me in my garden and follow the updates.
|This adaptable native plant produces huge flowers (as much as 12″ across) is reliable and beautiful. Very cold hardy Incrediball blooms on new growth so even very cold winters won’t keep it from blooming. The flowers are held upright on very sturdy stems, so they don’t flop like ‘Annabelle’ will. Available in garden centers Spring 2010.|
