Ornamental Value

Little Lime Hydrangea is a popular newer introduction that offers all of the impact of the standard panicle Hydrangea in a smaller form. Little Lime is a multi-stemmed, hardy shrub that thrives in a variety of settings including urban conditions. As with all panicle Hydrangeas this one blooms on new wood and is best pruned in the winter or early spring. Large flower heads emerge light green turning white, then fading to pink and burgundy in the fall. This particular variety exhibits strong branching that prevents the large flower heads from drooping. Little Lime Hydrangea flowers from July through September. Flowers can be cut and used in both fresh and dried arrangements or left on the shrub for added winter interest in the garden.
