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. 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 bloom color.
The 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 before drying to a beige color in winter.
