Why plant Little Lime® Hydrangea?
The little brother to Limelight Hydrangea, Little Lime® Hardy Hydrangea is the compact version, but don’t let this little guy fool you! It’s petite size growing 3-5 feet tall; this hardy shrub fits into every garden size! Proudly showing off an abundance of lime green blooms all summer long, then surprises you in pink as fall arrives. Sturdy stems hold up luscious clouds of flowers, making for charming cut flower bouquets for all seasons!
This may be the golden age of shrub breeding with Hydrangeas. Hydrangea Paniculata was first introduced in 1862 by Philip von Siebold, a German physician, botanist, and traveler. Also, a little fun fact about him: He was the father of the first female Japanese doctor educated in Western medicine, Kusumoto Ine. (Definitely look this guy up, his life is fascinating) Okay, back to Little Lime Hydrangea! It came about in August of 2005 at an open pollination breeding program in Grand Haven, Michigan. A cultivar created by combining 'Limelight Variegated' with Hydrangea paniculata and a mini star was born!

How To Plant Little Lime® Hydrangea
Since Hydrangea paniculata loves to bloom on new wood, prune the Little Lime Hydrangea in late winter or early spring. The quick trim will encourage new growth and improve stem strength. It isn’t too fussy about the sun doing well in full sun and partial shade. To prevent root rot, plant in well-drained soil for happier flowers! It may be good to apply some mulch to help retain moisture and protect the roots from harsh weather.
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. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
