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 Limelight Hydrangea Tree Form 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!
Hardiness Zones: 3-9
How To Plant Limelight Hydrangea Tree Form
Limelight Hydrangea performs best in areas that receive full sun, with afternoon shade in warmer climates. This plant requires a well draining soil that do not remain soggy, they are not a fan of 'wet feet'!
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
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.
How To Prune
The blooms on your Limelight Hydrangea appear on new wood (new growth!), so do your pruning in late winter or early spring. You can prune 'hard' at this point, by removing about 50% of the growth. This prune is the most important as it will keep your Hydrangea Tree well behaved and provide a solid structure to support the weight of the blooms to come!

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!
