Cold hardy Lacecap, the Invincibelle Lace® Smooth Hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens subsp. radiata 'SMNHRLL') is a subtle pink bloom that has a flat umbel of plum-rose pink buds that burst open into pinkish-white blossoms from the outside in, giving them a lacy effect all over your shrub!

The dark green pointed and toothy foliage has reddish stems for a wonderful depth of two-tone color! The handsome leaves are picturesque and dense with the classic Hydrangea quilted texture for a standout landscape addition! Pollinators will be drawn to your shrub while it's in bloom, and Hydrangea Sphinx Moths use these bushes as host plants for their caterpillars.

Invincibelle Hydrangeas Smooth Hydrangeas, like other varieties of wild Hydrangea. are cold-hardy natives to the US growing zones 3-8 and can reach a decent 4-5 foot height and width without pruning and training. Naturally rounded and dense, they are fantastic anchors, accents, hedges and backdrops for all garden applications.

Planting and Application:

A graceful shrub that’s an elegant specimen and focal point. Anchor foundation plantings and garden beds with these elegant bushes. Tall and dense enough for low privacy and screening while providing a season-long green backdrop for smaller shrubs and perennials. Plant in your Cottage and mixed-shrub borders and along the out-of-the-way areas of your property to create woodland informal plantings in the dappled shade of larger trees.

Lacecap Hydrangeas feature a long-bloom time with no need to deadhead. Plant anywhere you need a consistent pop of soothing color and a place for pollinators to refuel. Add to cutting gardens for floral bouquets and dried décor. These can be pruned smaller as fine texture in large planters.

  • Soft Rosy Plum Buds & Pinkish-White Blossoms
  • Rich Green Textured Foliage
  • Reddish Stems
  • Beneficial Pollinator Pollen Source & Host Plant
  • Long Bloom Time in Beds, Borders & Hedges

#ProPlantTips for Care:

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 in Cooler Zones, Part Shade in Hot
  • Regular Moisture
  • Organically Enriched Well-Drained Soil
  • Prune in Winter or Early Spring
