At just 3-5’ in height and width, the Little Lime pales in stature compared to its cousin the ‘Limelight’, but don’t let its size fool you. With blooms that start as pale lime green in the summer and age to rich pink in the fall, this hardy little hydrangea adds a vibrant punch to any garden. The new blooms in summer open on strong stems to help them hold their shape. From garden beds to containers, the Little Lime is a versatile performer and even makes a
perfect choice for cut flowers, either fresh or dried.
