Annabelle or 'white out' hedge
I'd like to create a white hydrangea hedge (would mean about 10 plants) along the side of my house. It gets morning sun, afternoon shade. I can't decide between Annabelle and the new "forever and ever--white out" variety. Any thoughts, or pros/cons between the two? I like how annabelle's blooms change to a lime green.... does "white out" do the same?
My other worry is that the stems will look unsightly during the winter. Can both of these varieties be cut down to the ground? Or will this effect their blooms in the spring. I know I can't cut my big leaf hydrangea down, but heard Annabelle and f&e are different.... true?
