Hydrangeas were studied in Japan by Philip Franz von Siebold in the early 1800's while he was there working for the Dutch East India Company. He is responsible for introducing them to Europe and from there they traveled to America. We owe him thanks because, without him, we would not have glorious hydrangea blooms in our gardens and landscapes. Limelight Hydrangea was developed in Boskoop, Netherlands in 1986 and, along with its paniculata companions, has become extremely popular in US landscapes.

How to use in the landscape?

Limelight Hydrangeas like to be the center of attention, so in order to keep us watching, their flower colors change throughout the growing season. At first they emerge creamy white, then mature to a chartreuse -lime. As the season progresses they change to pink, then rose, and eventually fade to beige. The flowers will remain on the plant through the winter to remind us that new ones will be arriving in spring!

Why Bower & Branch?

At Bower & Branch, it’s our job to know and grow trees… especially big trees.

- Trusted, Experienced Growers

- Trusted, Knowledgeable Expertise

- Trusted Brand of Quality Trees Across the United States

We do the hard part. Our trees and plants are grown and cared for by only the best, local growers for years before they find their forever home in your landscape. Bower & Branch is known for having hard-to-find, substantial sizes and selection. The quality of our trees and plants are consistent in health and vigor—always ready for immediate impact in your garden and instant curb appeal. We never rush our trees to reach a ‘grade size.’ Our trees are grown for quality height, vigor, health and age.

We believe in empowering homeowners with the truth about strong, healthy and structurally sound plants that are grown to perform in the ground after they leave the nursery for home delivery, always fresh inventory from the grower.

How To Plant

Limelight Hydrangea performs best in areas that receive full sun, with afternoon shade in warmer climates. This plant requires well drained soils that do not remain soggy. The blooms appear on new wood, so do not prune in late winter or early spring.

How To Water

They require keeping the soil moist (not too wet) after initial planting. Once established, they are more tolerant of drought conditions, reducing your hand-watering responsibilities.

How To Fertilize

During fall, feed your Hydrangea Bower & Branch Elements Fertilizer once a year for about the first 3 or 4 years - this will give your tree all the nutrients it needs.

How To Prune

Hydrangeas should be pruned so that dead branches and twigs that may be diseased can be removed. Do not compost any disease branches, dispose of them appropriately in the garbage. Pruning is best done after the flowers are spent.

Planting Zones

Hardiness Zones: 3-9


How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.

We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*Big trees, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks days to be delivered. - Sizes large (AA) and smaller (Treelings) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
