The Little Lime Punch Hydrangea, also known as Hydrangea paniculata, puts on an awe-inspiring show during the summer. Flowers are a brilliant shade of lime green, and as the growing season progresses, the blooms change color, starting at the bottom of each cloud-like cluster. The flowers turn white, pink and eventually settle into a rich red. While the transition takes place, the flower bunches display a stunning ombre fade. As this hydrangea reblooms throughout the summer, the shrub will have flower clusters in various stages of the color transition.
This deciduous shrub can be used in borders, landscapes, or containers. The blooms make excellent cut flowers that also dry very nicely. The Little Lime Punch Hydrangea has a compact growth habit and strong stems that support the large blooms. This lovely plant grows as a perennial in USDA zones 3 through 8.
Little Lime Punch® Hydrangea Care
Plant the Little Lime Punch Hydrangea in part to full sun. Increased light levels will promote more blooms, but consider a spot that receives afternoon shade in warmer climates. Newly planted hydrangeas need consistent water, but the plant will have average water needs once established. Use mulch around the base of the plant to retain moisture and prevent the soil from drying out. Soil pH does not impact the flower color, but this shrub prefers acidic soil.
Remove damaged growth at any time, but prune in late winter or early spring to promote new growth. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in early spring to start the growing season strong, and apply water-soluble plant food in mid-summer to keep the flowers coming.
Little Lime Punch® Hydrangea Spacing
As a medium-height shrub, this hydrangea will reach 36 to 60 inches and 36 to 60 inches wide. Space plants 30 to 60 inches to create a dense mass planting or hedge, or plant further apart to allow space around each shrub.
