Invincibelle Limetta® Smooth Hydrangea

For those of us who simply cannot get enough green goodness in our gardens. Invincibelle Limetta® smooth hydrangea is the next step when it comes to the classic ‘Annabelle’ hydrangea, it has much stronger stems, a more manageably sized habit, and most importantly, it pumps up the green coloring! When it flowers in the summertime, blooms emerge a captivating jade-green hue and soften to a creamy green for a period of time before maturing to a cozy, soft green. All the while it is still putting out new flowers! With its ability to rebloom you’ll never be without a delightful blend of green flowers to admire, from early summer well into fall. This mid-size native fits easily into any color scheme or garden plan as a border filler, specimen, or even the thriller in a container.

Why grow Invincibelle Limetta® smooth hydrangea?

  • Fantastic coloring, unique blooms all season long.
  • Reliable, hardy native.
  • Easy care regimen, no need to deadhead to encourage rebloom.

Light: It depends on the climate you live in. For gardens at the cooler end of their hardiness range, they will thrive in full sun. For gardens at the warmer end of the range, it benefits from placement in afternoon shade.

Soil: Prefers moist soil that drains easily. Any period of extended sogginess will not be tolerated. Soil pH does not affect flower color.

Water: Average water needs.

Fertilizing: Nothing special required. If desired, you may apply a granular fertilizer formulated for flowering woody plants in late winter/early spring when the soil is workable.

Pruning: Pruning is recommended in early spring. When the buds begin to swell noticeably, cut the whole plant back by one third. Make cuts just about 1/4 of an inch above a bud. Dead or damaged wood can be removed at any time, just cut back to a set of leaves!

Other: It can be used as a cut flower! For its longest vase life, cut vertically up the stem about 2″. This will help it absorb more water.
