Hydrangea – Invincibelle Wee White®
Dead-Heading Not Necessary
Smooth hydrangeas like Invincibelle Wee White are native to much of southeastern and central North America - you may even find one on a hike, though it won't look like the showy mophead varieties we grow in our gardens.
Native to North America
We recommend a minimum of six hours of bright sun for all smooth hydrangeas like Invincibelle Wee White. Sun ensures the strongest stems and the most blooms. In hot climates, afternoon shade is a good idea, but some sun is still imperative for best performance.
Pruning is very simple for Invincibelle Wee White hydrangea: just cut the whole plant back by about one-third its total height each spring, just as the new growth begins to appear on the stems. This serves to preserve the woody base while encouraging new growth for maximum blooms.
A 2-3" (5-7.6 cm) thick layer of shredded bark mulch is smart for all hydrangeas, which tend to have shallow roots. If desired, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.
You can use Invincibelle Wee White hydrangea in almost any landscape application. It's an especially nice choice for easy-care summer interest for foundation plantings or flower beds.
