Is this Annabelle or wild arborascens?

sue36(Z5 Maine)August 4, 2009

I purchased this last year and it's blooming nicely, but the blooms seem a little too flat and the leaves don't seem the right shade of green. Can anyone tell if this is a wild arborascens or an Annabelle? Thanks.

that's annabelle...wild type is more like a lacecap formation...yours is pretty much mopheads...btw, i love your garden design, great plants, good colors and texture.

Thanks Orchidacea. I'm happy to hear it's the real deal. It's just so much lighter colored than the one in my father's yard, but his is in much more shade (mine is in 100% sun).

In case anyone is wondering, that's a Little Lamb near the back left of the photo (with a Bloodgood Maple behind it) and a Incrediball off on it's own to the back right (that will be a new garden encircling the pin cherry).

That is a nice looking, young Annabelle!
