Hydrangea Annabelle as Lacecap


By Diohio

Hydrangea Annabelle as Lacecap (Hydrangea aborescens "Annabelle")

This is the first Annabell that I bought. It had no blooms when I bought it as a white mophead, so you can imagine my surprise when it bloomed lacecaps. I thought they had placed the wrong tag in her pot. It wasn't until 2 years later that I read that Annabelle has a tendancy to revert from mophead back to lacecap. Sometimes there will even be both lacecap and mophead on the same bush. I did buy another Annabelle that already had mophead blooms and she's still blooming mopheads 3 years later.

Mopheads? lol... love it. My Annabelle hasn't reverted, she's her same mophead-self as when I planted her three years ago. I have two of her progeny and they seem to take after her... thanks for the interesting detail.

Love the way you mixed the lacy thin foliage of the ferns with the large round leaf of the hydrangea. Opposites really do look great together.!
