Invincibelle® Spirit Smooth Hydrangea
- Part Sun to Sun
- Mature Size

Rich pink flowers bloom from early summer to frost. Dark pink buds open to hot pink flowers which then turn soft pink as they mature, finally changing to green at the end of their life cycle. Very hardy. Reliable bloomer. Native.
Pink summer flowers add rich color to summer landscapes. Excellent native plant for mixed borders or perennial gardens.
May be pruned back in late winter to encourage strong new growth and blooming. Adaptable to most moist, well drained soils. Bloom color is not affected by soil pH.
Our native smooth hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens) has come a long way in its lifetime, especially since the 1910 discovery of ‘Annabelle’ in Anna, IL – a now-famous variety whose name has become synonymous with the white, snowball-like summer blooms. Well, there’s a new belle of the ball, and she’s radiant in pink. Yes, pink. Invincibelle Spirit hydrangea is the first pink hydrangea of its kind, bringing all the hardiness and reliability of the smooth hydrangea, with a splash of color. When your bigleaf hydrangea varieties let you down with buds zapped by fickle spring temperatures, Invincibelle Spirit hydrangea will perform and perform… and perform as it continually blooms in nonstop waves from mid-summer until frost. It’s hardy to Zone 3 and prefers full sun or part shade.
Invincibelle Spirit hydrangea is an overachiever. If breakthrough color and reliable performance weren’t enough, it also stands tall for a cause. Since its introduction in 2010, $1 from each plant sold is donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF). Sales of the plant and corresponding Pink Day fundraises hosted at garden centers across North America have raised over $730,000 – 73% of the way to our million dollar goal! Based on BCRF’s system of quantifying dollars in action, this represents approximately 14,600 hours of research. That’s one powerful hydrangea!
