Hi Friends!  So if you followed along my stories you saw my love for hydrangeas and all the varieties.  Now where to begin….?!  With what I know, ALL species of hydrangeas can handle full sun to part shade, but I do believe mine in the part shade do better than those in full sun.  Just an FYI!

Lets start with the most basic one I know.  The Annabell Hydrangea.  Bloom- Late spring to early fall, and get about 5 feet tall.  I planted these when we first moved in, and I think I actually used Incredible’s and Annabell’s in this row. I bought the greenhouse out of their Incredibles and needed more! #imaddicted  (Also if you look close, the row of shrubs next to the sidewalk are bobo hydrangeas- I’ll talk more about these down below.)

Next is the Incredible.  The leaves and size are so similar to the Annabell, but its blooms are SO much bigger.  These bloom all summer long as well, early spring to fall and get about 5 feet tall!  But I swear mine are taller… And again full sun to part shade.


And if you followed my IG post and stories of the varieties I just planted this was it!  But in blush pink (Insert all the heart eyes here).

Limelights (Not pictured, sorry mine still aren’t in bloom!)- these are a tad larger than the hydrangeas per my research ranging 6-8 feet tall.  Currently at home, my Limelights are smaller than my Incredibles, so I am sure there are many contributing factors to this! They bloom late summer into fall, and I love having these with my Incredibles because I always have something blooming and to look forward too :).

The Pinky Winky-  It is coned shaped like the limelight in a beautiful blush pink.  This reminds me of the Limelight, and I am sure it must be in the same family because all their statistics are the same.

The Bobo is a dwarf hydrangea. It gets 1-3 feet tall and bloom all summer/ fall.  I love that these are white in the summer, and get this.. they turn pink in the fall!!!  I’ll try to update this with a photo when it turns pink soon!

Thank you all again for stopping by and I hope this helps!

  1. I too love white hydrangeas ( I have one big limelight ) and I’m thinking of redoing all the shrubs in front of my house this Fall and planting hydrangeas in front of the porch. My concern is what they will look like all winter long, as I’m used to having some type of evergreen shrub in front of my house. By the way front faces south so mostly sun all day long.
