Plant of the Week

Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight'

'Limelight' is a hardy hydrangea which blooms on new wood. Which to the home gardener means guaranteed late summer blooms.

'Limelight' is hardy to Zone 3 (we are zone 5)and can grow 6-8' in height, with a spread of 4-5'. Full sun is required.

It is perfect grown in the landscape or in containers.

As the name suggest the blooms are a creamy limey white, on mature plants quite large and showy.

'Limelight' requires little care and is not bothered by disease or garden pests.

It does require a good pruning yearly to keep it's shape and tip pruning in the spring eliminates the need to stake these heavy beauties.

This week we offer 'Limelight' at a 10% discount, and have them available in 2 gallon containers.

Oh, I miss my Limelight! It grew so nice and was a beautiful plant. Wish I did not have to leave it behind when we moved.
