Friday's Favourite - Invincibelle Spirit

I haven't posted a Friday's Favourite for a long time and I do enjoy featuring something that I like.
October is breast cancer awareness month and Proven Winners introduced a pink hydrangea called 'Invincibelle Spirit' about five years ago as a fundraiser for this illness. She was one of my trial shrubs back then and I've loved how the pretty flowers continue to bloom all summer right into autumn. 
Recently Proven Winners announced that over $730,000 has been donated so far to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
If you don't already grow this delicate pink flowering shrub that reaches 36-48 inches tall in full to part sun, I highly recommend it as a hydrangea for your garden. The photos are my own plant that is in full sun.
Add 'Invincibelle Spirit' to your garden and support a good cause.

  4. Invincibelle Spirit is beautiful! I also have this one in the garden but yours looks much better and bigger. I think it needs more sun and may be I'm going to transplant this hydrangea.

  5. I bought this shrub because it was supporting Breast Cancer. And it has grown slowly the last few years. It is getting much bigger but I think it needs a bit more room around it. But it does bloom even when I have crazy cold springs.

  8. Hi,Judith,
    Your pink hydrangea is so lovely.
    I find it makes me smile. I like your mosaic with the pink edge too. I hope I will be able to find that type of application soon!

    Have a nice weekend!

  10. Your Invincibelle Spirit is beautiful Judith and I like how the some of the proceeds go to Breast Cancer. I have not tried this one yet so it is nice to hear good reviews on it.

  11. Beautiful hydrangea Judith. I love that these flowers dry so nicely, and can be enjoyed indoors through the winter, too.

  15. Hi Judith, I added this one to my garden this spring after seeing yours and Larry's. It is a beauty for sure. Mine is still very small, but my 'Incrediball' grew quickly and produced extremely well and I'm hoping this one will follow suit. 49 degrees for a high today! Crazy weather!
    Hugs to you, Beth

  18. She sure is a beauty! We just hacked our azalea in half so that my garden might get more sun not to mention breeze. (Even the house had gone moldy.) Anyway, now I'm wondering what room I might have...have been wanting a hydrangea forever. Putting this info in my gardening book.

  19. This one is so delicate and lacy looking. It's great to know it's helped to raise so much for such a good cause and is beautiful as well.

  20. I love hydrangeas. I will tell my gardening daughter about this beauty. (If I still gardened, I'd plant it in honor of my late mother-in-lAW).
