Incrediball Hydrangea

4 – 5 feet


full sun to part shade

The stunning Incrediball Hydrangea is a broadleaf hydrangea and flowers on new wood.

For pruning, you can cut them back anytime between the first hard frost of fall to early spring. Some people will prune right back to the ground because they flower on new wood.

I like to shape mine and keep some of the older wood intact as it grows stronger over time, and helps to support the flower heads which can become quite heavy, especially after a rain. I also prune in the spring to keep the fall and winter interest of the dried flower heads.

It is a breathtaking shrub, which you can grow as a single specimen or plant as a beautiful privacy hedge.
