In the heat of summer, 'Limelight' comes to the rescue, reviving the garden with its outsized, cool green blooms. The flowers gradually blush to a rich, deep pink. They appear on new growth, typically even if twigs have been killed by frost. Afternoon shade is beneficial in the South. A Proven Winners® variety. PP 12,874
Because Paniculata Hydrangeas bloom on new growth (unlike the lacecap and mophead Hydrangeas which bloom from buds produced the previous year) they typically flower normally even if the twigs have been killed back by frost. Plant in a sunny, well-drained spot; some early afternoon shade is beneficial in hot southern regions. Prune in late winter or early spring.
