PRUNING YOUR ARBORESCENS HYDRANGEA: Both panicled hydrangea and smooth hydrangea, including ‘Annabelle’ and ‘Samantha,’ flower on new wood or current season’s growth, so they can be severely pruned after fall frost and still flower the following summer. In fact, some growers cut their ‘Annabelles’ to the ground each winter in order to have flower heads on three to four foot straight stems the next summer.
