Invincibelle Spirit Helps Raise Nearly $1 Million for Breast Cancer Research
Since the introduction of the Invincibelle Spirit hydrangea in 2009, sales from this plant have raised funds for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
At the end of 2015, fundraising efforts reached more than $900,000 toward its million dollar goal. In addition to donating one dollar for every plant sold, Invincibelle Spirit hydrangea serves as the heart of hundreds of Pink Day fundraisers hosted at garden centers across the United States and Canada.
Proven Winners ColorChoice, the brand behind Invincibelle Spirit hydrangea, selected The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) because it is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S. with an A+ rating from Charity Watch and 4 out of 4 stars from Charity Navigator. BCRF provides critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship.
New to the campaign in 2015 was the introduction of Invincibelle Spirit II hydrangea. This new variety improves upon the original Invincibelle Spirit while continuing the legacy of donating one dollar from each plant sold to BCRF.
From the continued H. arborescens breeding of Tom Ranney, this new hydrangea improves upon the original with brighter flower color, stronger stems, and superior container presentation. Like its predecessor, Invincibelle Spirit II hydrangea is a reliable rebloomer that will perform from Manitoba to Mobile.
