This adaptable native plant produces huge flowers (as much as 12" across) and is both reliable and beautiful. Flowers open green, then mature to white before turning green at the end of their life cycle. Very cold hardy Incrediball blooms on new growth so even very cold winters won't keep it from blooming. The flowers are held upright on very sturdy stems, so they don't flop like 'Annabelle' will.
Massive flowers bloom in summer, and are held up by very sturdy stems. Very hardy and reliable. Good for cut flowers. Native.
