Hydrangea Invincibelle® Spirit

Proven WinnersHydrangeaInvincibelle® Spirit


One of America's favorite flowering shrubs is now even better. Invincibelle® Spirit Hydrangea gives H. arborescens (Annabelle) a makeover with hot pink blooms and a temperature tolerance that enables gardeners from zone 3 to zone 9 to enjoy this fantastic shrub in their landscape. The classic pompon-shaped flower heads appear continuously from mid-summer to the first autumn frost. That's right! Unlike other hydrangeas Invincibelle® Spirit continues to produce flowers. It is a deciduous shrub that is 3 to 4 foot tall and equally wide.

Planting Tips

H. arborescens prefers full sun to partial shade. It will adapt to any soil type but grows best in humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil. Invincibelle® Spirit blooms on new wood so even if the stems die back to the ground in winter the shrub will produce flowers the following summer. To encourage lots of new growth and flower production prune in spring.


Everyone knows that the garden is a place of healing, right? It's where I go to sooth my soul and exercise my body. The flowers and veggies I grow often find their way to those in need and visitors always feel better after spending time in the garden. By planting an Invincibelle® Spirit Hydrangea I can extend the healing powers of the garden beyond my circle because 1 dollar from every shrub sold goes to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Imagine what would happen if every garden boasted the pink blooms of Invincibelle® Spirit Hydrangea.
