Why does my 'Annabelle' have tons of teeny tiny blooms?

17 years ago

I just planted it last year, and last summer it had the trademark giant droopy blooms. Some of them were 10 inches across. I did prune the canes back to about 24" early this spring at the first sign of leaf buds, and the plant has filled out to about four feet tall. BUT this season it has smaller, lighter green leaves and tons of tiny blooms-- maybe two inches across. It looks more like its wild hydrangea cousin found in nature. Any idea what happened??
