This variety is a dwarf form of the Limelight Hydrangea. Little Lime Hydrangea features dense, upright panicles of flower heads that start out a soft lime green, fading over the summer to white and finally brown in fall. These blooms carry the same color but are not as large as those of the Limelight. One of the hardier selections, it offers fall interest by leaving the blooms up. These same dried papery blooms provide a lovely scene in winter, especially against the snow. Use the blooms, either fresh or dried, in an assortment of decor. Pruning is best done in late winter to earlier spring, removing about one third of the plant to shape and remove the spent blooms. In some seasons, the blooms might take on a pink tone when the weather is cooler.
Other Names: Panicle Hydrangea; Dwarf Limelight Hydrangea
