HYDRANGEA PAN. 'LIMELIGHT' - Single Plants
This offering is for single plants of this variety. These are growing in 4 inch containers.
Best grown in organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Appreciates some part afternoon shade in hot summer climates. Tolerates heat and humidity. This is one of the most winter hardy of the hydrangeas. It thrives in urban conditions. Bloom occurs on current season’s growth, so plants will bloom reliably each year regardless of the severity of the winter. Prune as needed in late winter to early spring.
Native to China and Japan, panicle hydrangea is a vigorous, upright, rapidly growing, somewhat coarsely textured, deciduous shrub that typically grows to 8-15’ tall. It features oval to ovate dark green leaves and upright, sharply-pointed, pyramidal terminal panicles containing both fertile and sterile white flowers that bloom late summer to early fall. ‘Limelight’ is a slightly more compact cultivar that typically grows to 6-8’ tall and as wide. It is noted for producing large, dense, upright, cone-shaped panicles (to 8” across) of mostly sterile flowers that change color on the shrub as they mature. Flowers emerge creamy white, mature to chartreuse-lime and eventually acquire pink-darkening-to-rose tones before finally fading to beige. As the flower show fades in fall, the oval to ovate, serrate, dark green leaves (to 4” long) turn attractive shades of red. Panicles may be cut for fresh arrangements or for drying, or may be left on the plant where they will persist well into winter. Zones 3 to 8.
