Incrediballâ„¢ Blush Mountain Hydrangea Hydrangea arborescens 'NCHA4' PPAF

Description

If you like big and bodacious, Incrediball™ Blush delivers! Large pink flower heads top stiff stems with dark leaves. Flower heads reach their maximum size after establishing, roughly 3 years. The blooms progress from blush pink to deep pink, then age to an attractive chartreuse green in fall. This plant is dependable and impervious to cold. Because the plant blooms on new wood, late winter pruning will encourage vigorous new stem growth and good form. Rabbits seem to avoid this plant.

The Incrediball™ series was developed as a collaboration with Dr. Thomas G. Ranney of NC State University and the Spring Meadow Nursery of Grand Haven, MI.
