Enjoy the Luscious Bloom of the Hydrangea
Each week Sugar Creek Gardens introduces us to a garden show-stopper.
A breeding masterpiece, 'Incrediball' Hydrangea boasts gargantuan blooms and strong beefy stems. Each ivory white flower head has roughly four times as many flowers as other Smooth Hydrangea creating a blossom as large as a basketball.
Its strong stems hold the massive flowers up, even in heavy rain. Absolutely spectacular in the garden and arrangements. In the fall the blossoms transform to deep chartreuse, creating another dramatic sight. The long-lasting dried flower balls last well into late winter on the shrub or for months more in home arrangements. Shrubs grow 4-5 feet tall, and should be cut back in early spring.
