A pink Hydrangea arborescens was a goal for many plant breeders. When Richard Olson discovered a pink flowering arborescens in the Blue Ridge Mountains, he named it ‘Wesser Falls’. He worked with Dr Tom Ranney to combine ‘Wesser Fall’ and ‘Annabelle’ and after 5 years produced ‘Invincibelle Spirit’, the first arborescens with pink sterile florets. The large, dome-shaped flower heads will remain attractive for several months from midsummer.

Our plant was obtained from the ‘Duchy of Cornwall’ nursery in 2013
