For a magnificent feature plant in garden or patio look no further than this superb Hydrangea. It grows strongly each year with lush mid green foliage and the pyramid shaped panicles of flowers which emerge from mid summer have to be seen to be fully appreciated. Supported on strong stems, the buds open in a delicate shade of lime green, maturing to a gleaming white and lasting for weeks and later gaining a lovely pink flush. Fresh blooms – if you can bear to cut them - are imposing in a vase and the dried flowerheads can be used as a permanent decoration.
The leaves and stems are a colourful spectacle in their own right with pale green stems flushed with pink and dleightful yellow-green leaves.
Hydrangea 'Limelight' makes a standout border plant and is equally at home in a large patio planter. It likes neutral to acid, free-draining soil and a sunny or part-shaded spot. For maximum flower power prune back in early spring to two or three buds as the blooms appear on new growth each summer.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Supplied as 3 established plants in 9cm pots, limelight makes a stunning specimen, growing to approx. 2.5m in 10 years.
