Unfortunately one of the drawbacks to the large flowers is they are often knocked down by rain. Branches end up arching down with the weight of the blooms. If you have a shrub that is prone to this, you can tie it up when this happens, but there is a better solution to the problem. In early spring, place stakes around the plant. Add support as it grows so that by the time blooms develop, you have branches well supported. The support is well hidden by the large foliage and flowers will stand up straight.

Annabelle hydrangea is the one with big globes of white flowers that is just finishing up its bloom. As the flowers fade, they turn green and then the petals dry to brown.
