How to's - Flowers prunning annabelle hydrangea blooms#Kellylehman #cranburyfields #annabellehydrangea
Hi Flower tribe, It’s Kelly Lehman Owner of Cranbury Fields Flower Farm and today I’d like to show you a few Tips on Pruning Annabelle Hydrangea Blooms.
It seems I missed the boat on my normal Annabelle Hydrangea pruning and wanted to show you what my Annabelles look like in summer without the pruning .
Since Annabelle Hydrangea bloom on new growth ( new stems that grew this season), it’s ok to prune them back during late fall, late winter or early spring before new growth starts to appear. This pruning back will give you larger flower blooms that will make your garden or landscaping pop.
If you decide not to prune them back or just miss the pruning back season like I did, that’s ok too. You will still get gorgeous blooms on the new growth but the blooms may be slightly smaller then the ones on plants that were pruned back.
Annabelle Hydrangeas love being planted in morning sun with some afternoon shade.
The flower heads start off with creamy white blooms that later turn to a lovely lime green. These flowers make for great dried flowers too.
