Hydrangea Paniculata Little Lime Hedging
Hydrangea paniculata Little Lime
An excellent new dwarf version of Hydrangea paniculata Limelight, growing to just 120cm tall in flower but with the same large lime green flowers held on strong upright stems that dont flop around in wet weather. Like its larger sibling the flowers age to cream and finally blush pink. This is a superb plant for smaller gardens where space is limited bringing later season interest, grow them in beds, containers or as a low informal flowering hedge.
Hydrangea Little Lime is easy to grow in sun or partial shade, they prefer a rich moisture retaining soil that doesnt dry out too much in Summer, thinnner and lighter soils would benefit from a good amount of organic matter being well mixed in the hole at planting time and these glorious shrubs enjoy a good mulch being applied during Spring to get the best from them, this is especially the case for younger plants. Prune the plants back hard to a low framework in Early Spring for best flowering and remove any weak or crossing stems at the same time. We recommend adding Rootgrow when planting all Hydrangeas to give them the best start.
