 COMMON NAME: Hydrangea

Limelight hydrangea is a patented hydrangea cultivar with dramatic blooms that range from lime green to creamy white to dusty rose and even burgundy during a long flowering season from July through September. It was bred from paniculata hydrangeas, whose name refers to the shape of the flower trusses.

The leaves of this fast-growing hardy shrub also feature attractive fall foliage, becoming tinged with deep red. This color show is as elegant and thrilling as it is reliable and looks great in a variety of landscape design styles. The flowers also look very nice in the vase as cut flowers, and can be dried for long-lasting decor. Wait until they start to turn blush pink before cutting them for drying.

Maintenance Notes: 

Mid-Spring: Prune out any dead wood from all varieties. Check soil pH and adjust up or down if needed for desired flower color. Feed plants with a fertilizer high in phosphorus (such as 15-30-15) to encourage blooms. Complete any transplanting before the leaves unfurl. Mulch plants after the soil has warmed to conserve moisture and buffer soil temperatures. Watch for powdery mildew and treat as needed.

Fall: Remove and destroy any fallen foliage that was infected by powdery mildew. In Zone 5, cover the stems with a 12” layer of organic material such as straw or mulched leaves to help flower buds overwinter. You may also wrap your Hydrangea with burlap to protect it from winds and cold temperatures.
