Little Lime Hydrangea is a compact cultivar that typically grows into an upright rounded mound 3-5' tall and wide. It is the product of an open pollination in a planned breeding program that took place in Grand Haven, Michigan, in August of 2005 between Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight Variegated' (female parent) and an unknown selection of Hydrangea paniculata (male parent). Little Lime Hydrangea is particularly noted for its large mophead type inflorescences (panicles to 5" tall by 4" wide), with sterile flowers emerging soft light green, and maturing to pink and burgundy in fall. 

Additional features of interest include compact, upright-mounded shape, free branching habit and strong stems which hold the panicles upright with no drooping. Flowers typically bloom from July through September. Ovate, serrulate, dark green leaves (to 2 1/2" long) are attractive during the growing season, but produce generally undistinguished fall color. Flower panicles may be cut for fresh arrangements or for drying, or may be left on the plant where they often persist into winter.


Planting Information

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Little Lime Hydrangea plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil, you may need to add a locally-sourced compost or topsoil to the backfill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a backfill soil for Hardy Hydrangea Paniculata Little Lime because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Little Lime Panicle Hydrangea spread through the loose, nutrient-rich soil much easier than if you used solely the existing soil, which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant too deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally-occurring, beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardener's best friend and can help guarantee your success.
