Hydrangea aborescens 'Incrediball®' is a wonderful improved variety of Smooth Hydrangea. It is bred for larger flower clusters and less flopping, making it a stunning statement plant. It is no surprise that it was chosen by Proven Winners as their Landscape Shrub of the Year®!
We recommend planting this hydrangea in partial shade, or with morning sun, such as a northern exposure. Amend the soil with plenty of compost or peat moss before planting, and then mulch to keep the plant moist throughout the season.
In spring, cut back the plant by about half and apply a granular all-purpose fertilizer or a hydrangea-specific fertilizer.
Hydrangea aborescens 'Incrediball®' mixes nicely with astilbes, azaleas, ferns, solomon's seal, hostas, and jacob's ladder. Here are some specific plants that would look beautiful paired with Hydrangea aborescens 'Incrediball®'.
