If you really want to add an ‘awe’ factor to your landscape, the Limelight Hydrangea tree form is exactly what you need!

The Limelight Hydrangea paniculata in tree form raises its enormous, beautiful creamy white flowers at eye level, making it impossible to miss! The flowers begin a soft lime green, fading into a graceful white in the mid summer with hints of pink, red, and burgundy in fall as the white blooms age.

The cone shaped flowers of the panicle hydrangea shrub will stand out amongst others to rounded nature and beautiful colors. Growing hydrangea trees makes a true statement piece in your yard!

The Lime Hydrangea tree features deep, rich green foliage all season long with pointy green leaves. The dark green foliage contrasts the lime green flowers nicely during the full bloom time.

Limelight hydrangea tree

I love it. It was packaged so professionally. My tree went into shock but I followed all packaged instructions and it has rejuvenated very nicely. I will buy again from this company. Truly impressed. By the way, do not think it would have went into shock but I planted it in dead hot summer.
