These large clusters are supported by strong stems and rebloom on old and new wood for densely mounded flowering shrubs that enliven the shadiest spots in your garden. Highly adaptable, you'll love the ease and versatility of this shrub!

A prolific bloomer, Bella Anna is a Smooth Hydrangea that beautifies your interior as well as your exterior as they become welcome additions to dried and cut flower arrangements! As fall arrives, the leaves turn to gold for a beautiful autumnal effect! Very cold-hardy throughout USDA growing zones 4 through 9, these tolerate heat very well too! Just provide them a bit of afternoon shade in the hottest climates.

Planting and Application:

Bella Anna originates from a Hydrangea native to America, and this makes it a fine choice for attracting bees, butterflies, and birds to your natural setting! Group these wildlife shrubs into woodland gardens or at the back of your property to attract wildlife. A vigorous grower that loves some shade, Bella Anna will transform dark garden recesses into vibrant focal points in your garden! The reblooming and sturdy nature provides your landscape with flowers from summer until fall, then dried winter interest too!

A fantastic size for smaller properties, low hedges and definition, backdrops or as perfectly sized foundation plants! Create a row behind your garden to highlight smaller plants or use them in staggered lines for accenting fencelines and softening hardscapes. These are also compact enough for larger planters on your porch or patio! Filling out your seating areas with romantic blossoms!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

No need to fuss with pH in your soil to keep these dense mopheads a lovely pink hue! Smooth Hydrangea thrives in full sun in cooler climates but appreciates a shaded location in hot growing zones. Mulch their site well to keep the roots cool and hold in moisture, since they do best in average, consistent moisture. Prune to the ground if desired in early spring or clean up the mounds before you see new growth in spring. Tolerant of about any kind of well-drained soil, they prefer enriched organic medium.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Moderate Moisture
  • Any Well-Drained Soil
  • Prune Early Spring
  • Highly Adaptable, Easy-Care & Very Winter Hardy!

As soon as you see this soothing and dreamy variety of Smooth Hydrangea available, you better be sure to pounce on it! Don't wait to order your own Bella Anna Hydrangea today from the experts at!
