Limelight Hydrangea features panicles of exquisite, bright lime flowers. The flowers emerge creamy white to lime green and gradually change to rosy pink as they mature. This hybrid will add a beautiful splash of color to your summer landscape. Abundant clusters of flowers emerge from the new wood, summer to fall. Fall blooms gradually turn to beige while the dark green foliage begins to turn shades of red. The brightly colored blooms are great for cut flower arrangements, and can even be dried for longer lasting beauty. The beautiful blooms will remain on into winter when left on the shrub. This is one of the most winter hardy hydrangeas available. It is a somewhat compact cultivar. Heat and humidity tolerant. Plant in mass plantings for a stunning effect in your landscape. Great as a hedge or accent plant. This beauty will keep on blooming when most other shrubs are not!
