Vigorous and upright, limelight hydrangea are known for their impressive rounded-form shrub that is covered in large clusters of creamy white florets that mature to chartreuse green in the midsummer weeks. As fall approaches, the dense flower panicles of these hydrangea bushes change to deep pink for an altogether different look. Limelight hydrangea bushes have sturdy stems that keep the flower heads upright and visible through any kind of weather. Robust plants can reach a height of 13 feet and will be loaded with 8-12" flowers in no time. The limelight hydrangea shrub is a perfect choice for mass planting, mixed shrub border, or as an anchor in a woodland garden. Does best in moist, but well-drained soil. Blooms on new wood--prune in late fall to early spring for increased flowering. Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight' PP12874
