Hydrangea Invincibelle Mini Mauvette, Smooth Hydrangea

Invincibelle Mini Mauvette Hydrangea will change the way you think about Hydrangeas. This tough cutie features dense, round purple-mauve blossoms for months on plants that only grow 2-3′ tall. A strong rebloomer, its flowers enchant the garden from summer through fall. Only growing 2-3′ high and 3-4′ wide makes them perfect for small hedges, naturalizing, rain gardens, foundation plantings, edging for walkways, perennial and cutting gardens, and patio pots. Its deep emerald foliage and strong stems make this jewel a standout in containers as well as in gardens. Attractive to butterflies, birds and other pollinators. Its parents are the beloved Missouri native Smooth Hydrangea, Hydrangea arborescens.

Guaranteed to bloom! Since it only blooms on new wood you won’t have to worry if we get a late frost that kills buds, or pruning at the wrong time. You’ll be enjoy its beautiful blossoms long after it has finished blooming as the flowers last for months indoors as dried flowers, or outside on the shrubs. Very hardy and reliable due to its Smooth Hydrangea parentage, it tolerates heat, high humidity, and wet soils. Invincibelle Mini Mauvette Hydrangea adapts to most soils.

Plant in sun to part shade in average to rich soil. Although drought tolerant, for best bloom give consistent moisture.

Pruning. Smooth Hydrangeas should be pruned in early spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge on the stems. Cut the entire plant back by about one-third its total height. This serves to build up a strong woody base while also encouraging vigorous new growth with many flowers.
