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 Water
The Little Lime® prefers to keep the soil moist but not saturated, especially in the summer. Throughout the Hydrangea's life it will be best to do a deep watering once weekly during hot temperatures.
How To Fertilize
When feeding this little guy, it should take place in early spring. We recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food.
