Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight'

Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight'

Common name hortensia
Family hydrangeaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z4-9)
Flowers greenish white (summer)
Size 4' (so far)
Light sun-part shade

This hydrangea is not classified as a paniculata grandiflora (PeeGee) hydrangea, although its flowers seem plenty big to me. Now in our garden for about six years, it has reached a good size (actually, it has probably outgrown its location against our foundation). The flowers brighten our side garden, which has become shadier through the years, for a long period of summer.

'Limelight' in late December: the spent flowers hold up well into winter.

In fall of 2006, we purchased two additional H. paniculata cultivars: 'Pink Diamond' and 'Unique', both of which grow to small-tree proportions. They're small for now - maybe when they start displaying their individual characteristics they'll merit their own portrait pages.
