Quick Overview:

When ‘Limelight’ hydrangea came on to the market, it became an instant classic. Limelight Prime® hydrangea shares all the same qualities that made the original a success, while also offering:

  • A denser, more compact habit that creates a lush, full look in the landscape
  • An earlier bloom time, which is especially beneficial in cooler climates
  • Better flower color, from its early summer green phase all the way through autumn’s red and pink tones
  • Strong, sturdy stems that won’t flop over, even under the weight of enormous blooms
  • A smaller size that works perfectly for home landscapes and gardens

Description

Best grown in organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Can be trained as a small single trunk tree, but is best grown as a large, multi-stemmed shrub. This is one of the most winter hardy of the hydrangeas. It thrives in urban conditions. Bloom occurs on current season’s growth, so prune as needed in late winter to early spring.   (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
