How To Plant
Annabelle is an easy to grow hydrangea variety that can handle any soil pH as long as the soil drains well and there is not standing water. There are very little pruning requirements due to the flowers blooming on new wood each year so just cut the bush to the ground to start over. You'll want to prune in the spring before new growth sprouts up. Be sure that Annabelle is grown in a location that sees full sun or part shade, the sun allows for the bush to grow large and strong. Annabelle is going to need to be on a consistent watering schedule so Annabelle does not dry out.

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting.
