The unusual green blossoms of Limelight Prime® Hydrangea will stand out in your landscape from summer through fall. The flowers on this shrub transform to shades of bright red and pink as they age. The color metamorphosis will provide a gorgeous changing view throughout the year. The strong green leaf-covered stems can support the large panicles without dropping. Hydrangea paniculata will perform best in partial to full sun conditions in USDA hardiness zones 3 to 8. This deciduous shrub will grow to between 48 and 72 inches in height with a 48-to-60-inch spread.

This upright, easy to grow plant has average watering needs. Grow it in most pH conditions as long as the soil is well-draining. This panicle hydrangea can be used in border gardens, mass plantings, as a specimen plant or focal point in your landscape. Plant multiple to create a gorgeous flowering screen from spring to fall. It can also be used in the thriller role in a very large container. The flowers make great choices in both fresh and dried floral arrangements. No deadheading is required for continuous bloom.

Limelight Prime® Hydrangea Care

Prune the main branches back by one third in late winter or early spring. Trimming may also be done in late fall after the plant has lost its leaves and gone dormant. Do not trim once new growth appears because this hydrangea blooms on new wood.

Fertilize in early spring with a granular rose fertilizer, if desired. Cold climate gardeners should fertilizer when the ground begins to thaw. If you want your plant to grow faster, additional applications of fertilizer can be applied monthly through late July. Additional fertilization is not necessary for overall plant health and many blossoms.

Limelight Prime® Hydrangea Spacing

Give this shrub room to mature by spacing it 48 to 60 inches away from other shrubs and structures.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
