The Direct Gardening Association (formerly called the Mailorder Gardening Association) in the US has given Hydrangea arborescens ‘NCHA5’ Invincibelle Wee White a 2018 Green Thumb Award for best new plant in the plants, bulbs and seeds division, informs Spring Meadow Nursery. Invincibelle Wee White is part of the Proven Winners program. Last year, Hydrangea arborescens ‘NCHA3’ Invincibelle Ruby Hydrangea received one of the three 2017 Green Thumb Award. Invincibelle hydrangeas are developed by Thomas G. Ranney from the North Carolina State University in collaboration with Spring Meadow Nursery and brought onto the North American market under the Proven Winners ColorChoice brand.
Only dwarf ‘Annabelle’ hydrangea in the world
According to Spring Meadow Nursery Invincibelle Wee White is the biggest thing to happen to hydrangeas happens to be tiny. “It’s the first dwarf ‘Annabelle’ type hydrangea in the world.” Therefor the nursery considers Invincibelle Wee White as positively ground-breaking. “This cute little landscape plant ensures that any landscape can enjoy the reliability, low-maintenance, and season-long beauty of hydrangeas. It reaches just 1-2.5′ (0,30 to 0,70 m) tall and naturally grows as a tidy, rounded mound. Each pure-white flower is held up on a strong, supportive stem for a display that looks more like a bouquet of flowers than a landscape plant. Blooming begins in early summer and continues through frost, with new flowers appearing the whole time.”
In the US the plant will be available at the ‘better garden centres’ in spring 2018.
