This Hydrangea Loves A Sunny Landscape

June 16, 2018

Love hydrangeas but have a sunny landscape? There is a beautiful hydrangea that will work in sunnier locations, according to Escambia Extension.

Limelight hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata ‘Limelight’) is a large deciduous shrub that is a show piece in the summer garden. Large light green flowers form on new wood and cover the shrub.

But if there is not enough room for this hydrangea that gets 8-feet tall and wide, consider ‘Little Lime’ which grows about 4-feet tall and wide. Both can be purchased in local nurseries.
