Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight'
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.
|greenish white (summer)
|4' (so far)
|'Limelight' gets pink highlights as the flowers age
|'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.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|I planted my 30" Limelight in bright shade 09/2005. It has bloomed each summer since then and is now almost 5' tall and 4' wide. The flowers are a wonderful soft green that becomes pink over time. I also have a Pink Diamond that has pink tinted white flowers. The pink is very delicate but definitely there. And I have a baby Blushing Bride that is a rooted cutting about 5" tall w/two ginormous blooms that are softest baby pink and gorgeous. Oddly, Blushing Bride hasn't grown much in the 5 months I've had it. Sprink 09 will tell the tale. - Carol
