I am so amazed by the big fat cone shaped blossoms on my Limelight Hydrangea that I just had to share!

Isn’t that bloom huge!! I planted this hydrangea just last April and the growth has just been astounding!
This is what that area looks like today. You saw the other side of the barn – the seating area here. I think I’m going to plant another Limelight here this fall. I’ll try propagating it. Won’t a border of Limelights be pretty next year!
Hydrangea paniculata ‘Limelight’ has soft lime green petals that mature into pink in the fall. It grows 8-10 feet tall and can be trained into a tree shape! Limelights bloom on new wood, so you should prune them late in the fall, winter or early in the spring. They’re hardy to Zone 3/4. They do seem to be a bit floppy!
I think they’d be a pretty addition to any garden. They are really spectacular when in bloom!
