Lush Cone Shaped Blooms Add Visual Appear During Summer

Planting a Limelight Hydrangea bush will add a true show stopper vibe and summer feel to your garden!

The Limelight hydrangea shrub boasts cone-shaped flowers that are larger than most other hydrangea varieties and begin to bloom mid-summer. Celadon green flowers bloom on new wood year after year. Deadhead spent flower blossoms in winter or early spring to encourage new growth and accelerate the bloom time.

The creamy white lime-green color of the hydrangea blooms will last all the way into the fall growing season. Eventually, they will change into a deep pink that truly highlights and contrasts with its lush dark green leaves. Soil pH does not affect limelight bloom color. The white flower color will change as the weather cools down in fall.

The proven winner variety is what is known as a panicle hydrangea which means the blooms get quite large and the flower heads change from white to pink, red, or burgundy before drying to a beige color in winter.

Planting Limelight Hydrangeas

The Hydrangea paniculata limelight has an upright growing structure that will get up to 8 feet tall and wide at maturity. It is also drought-tolerant. It performs best in loamy, moist, well-drained soil types and unlike many other hydrangeas, it prefers full sun to partial sun.

This flowering shrub can grow in most of the United States in the Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 3-9. Makes an excellent shrub border. Growing hydrangeas is fun and rewarding! They can grow in most of North America.

The best time of year to plant the limelight tree is in early spring so it has time to establish roots. The limelight hydrangea growth rate is up to 12 inches per year.


A slow-release fertilizer applied in early spring will help this type of hydrangea thrive during the growing season. Apple insecticidal soap if you see pests such as slugs, snails, aphids, or spider mites.

Limelight hydrangea pruning should happen in late winter or early spring before new growth appears or larger flower buds start forming.

Our Limelight Hydrangea for sale is a perfect choice if you are looking for easy to grow, blooms every year, and even makes gorgeous cut flowers! The lime hydrangea flowers are a favorite for many gardeners!

This plant she I received it had no leaves. I have planted and looking forward to watching it develop into a beautiful hydrangea. Once I see that it’s going to show growth, I will update my review.

Gorgeous hydrangeas

We loved everything about our purchase. The plants arrived in a timely manner and were really beautiful. They were a nice size and had tons of blooms on them, which was unexpected due to us going into winter.

Not recommended

I bought the package of two 3-gallon hydragenas to plant in the front of the house and they sent me a 3-gallon plant and a smaller one that looked like 1 gallon and obviously. It's not the idea I had
