I read with interest your article on this shrub but I was wondering if you would tell me how big this gets. I have limited space left after everything else is planted but I have always wanted a Hydrangea because my Mother had one when I was growing up.

Thank you for the article.

In my zone 'Annabelle' usually grows no more than 3 feet tall but spreads to around 6 feet wide. Here at the nursery, we jokingly call it the "creeping Hydrangea" :)

I have three plants. Limelight is 3 years, appx 4' tall and 5' wide. The Pink Diamond is a 2 year standard and about 4' tall so far. Blushing Bride is new and bloomed at only 6" tall - The blooms were bigger than the plant! Wonderful. I have an unidentified plant that was a gift and it's already appx 18" the first year and a neon pink bloom. They are definitely worth the space in my opinion! My gardening space is 40' wide and appx 55ish long so I know about small space gardening. :) - Carol

PS. Great, as always, Todd!
