An improved Limelight! Prime kept the traits you loved in Limelight but is only about 2/3 the size of its older sibling. Refreshing lime-green flowers bloom weeks earlier with stronger stems that hold the large panicles upright. Flowers keep their color until cooler weather brings shades of pink ending with a finale of warm dusky red.

Hydrangea Limelight Prime can be grown as a stunning flowering hedge or an eye-catching specimen. Vases will overflow with both fresh and dried cut flowers. Paniculatas are the most cold hardy-a native of Asia. Stiff upright branches never get floppy. Will need several hours of sun to do well. Flowers are more cone-shaped than ball-like. Proven WinnersŪ selections are trialed and tested to be colorful, long blooming, carefree and easy to grow.

Hydrangea General Information

Paniculata Hydrangeas are cold hardy, more sun tolerant and superb in the border for summer and autumn display. Blooming on new wood, the flowering is not affected by cold snaps and will bloom consistently every year. Provides winter interest too if flowers are left on. Great for indoor decorating as their flowers are easily dried. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Hydrangea Plant Care

Paniculata Hydrangeas can be pruned in the fall, winter, or spring. Do not prune just before they bloom, and it is not necessary to prune them every year. For a strong structure, it is a good idea to trim out any crossing branches once in awhile. Shaping can be done as needed.
