Incrediball® Blush Hydrangea

Availability: Out of stock

You won't believe the size of the blooms on the beautiful Incrediball® Blush Hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens INCREDIBALL 'NCHA4'). They really do get as big as basketballs! One bloom cluster will fill a big vase! Big toothy and textured green foliage fills out these mid-sized shrubs and creates a picturesque form in the landscape.

The pale pink blooms transform to deep pink in late summer and finally to chartreuse green in the fall. The dried tan blooms last for months on the shrub and longer if cut and dried for inside arrangements all winter. Butterflies drop by for a visit all summer when these are in bloom, adding to their beauty!

Incrediball® Blush is beautiful, but it is also one tough cookie. The flowers are held on long, strong stems that stand up to rain like a champ. So, unlike other Hydrangeas that look wilted and limp after a good summer rain, Incrediball® Blush can take a licking and keep on ticking. These shrubs are resilient, too. They will faithfully bloom for you every year, even after a harsh winter.

Planting and Application:

Incrediball® Blush gets covered in its massive pink flowers, completely eye-catching in the border - or anywhere in your garden for that matter! You'll certainly set your home apart from everyone else in the neighborhood with a couple of these blooming shrubs flanking your driveway or dividing your home's front yard from the sidewalk for low privacy that catches the eye.

Use a row as an impressive foundation planting or backdrop for your other shrubs and perennials, the textured green leaves highlighting not just its own enormous blooms, but everything else as well! They're of course a perfect specimen plant and focal point that keeps its big mopheads throughout the fall and into winter for year-round interest.

  • Pink Blooms As Large As Basketballs
  • Textured Green Toothy Foliage
  • Strong Stems Hold The Big Blossoms Aloft
  • Four Season Interest
  • Easy to Grow Hedge, Specimen & Unique Cut Flower

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant in full sun for the strongest stems to help support those large flowers, and to increase how many flowers your plant creates! Smooth Hydrangea bushes bloom on new wood, so prune in the late winter or very early in the spring before they begin to grow. Plant in a well-drained and highly organically enriched soil that remains consistently moist. So use a thick layer of mulch for moisture and insulation.

  • Full Sun
  • Regular Moisture
  • Organically Enriched Well-Drained Soil
  • Prune in Winter or Early Spring
  • Hardy USDA Zones 3-9

The Incrediball® Blush Hydrangea bush is the biggest blooms and strongest of the flowering shrubs available! Order yours today and kick up the curb appeal for your home big time! Delivered to your doorstep by!
