The Christmas rush is over, the nursery catalogs are coming in the mail, and my inbox is filling with exciting email offers from seed and nursery companies!  Now is the time to plan and dream about all the fun (hard work) I will have in my gardens this summer.

This new pink Annabelle type hydrangea, Invincibelle Spirit, has really caught my attention, and I must, must, MUST have it for my cutting gardens!  I can already picture a bouquet of these in the pink depression glass vase that came from Grandma Anderson.  Isn’t she a beauty, and doesn’t it get your fingers itching to dig in the dirt?

New in 2010. USDA Zones 3-9 (perennial in zone 3).
Breeder: Dr. Thomas Ranney.
1) Blooms each year without the special care or pampering required by other hydrangeas.
2) Blooms are always pink, and not affected by soil pH.
3) Blooms on new wood, so it develops flowers even if killed to the ground from harsh winters.
4) Funds breast cancer research; for every plant sold, $1.00 will be sent to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
