The Ball Hydrangea is decorative all year round!
The full flowers of the Annabel hydrangea stand upright and bend over time due to their weight. To prevent them from breaking off or bending too far forward after rainfall, you should support the snowball hydrangea with planting stakes or a trellis. This makes the view of the flower bush all the more beautiful. This is not only convincing in summer, but is also an eye-catcher in autumn and throughout the winter. Simply leave the faded and dry flower stalks until spring. They are decorative and add structure to the garden. In early spring, cut back the shoots of the Annabelle hydrangea to ground level. The ornamental shrub will sprout again and delight you for many years to come.
