Little Lime Panicle Hydrangea
Little Lime® Panicle Hydrangea bushes (Hydrangea paniculata ‘Jane’) are a little dwarf-sized long flowering Hydrangea that keeps on giving! Despite being such a small plant, it is packed with a vigorous growth habit, hardiness, and drought tolerance, while thriving in all climates, hot or cold!
Starting off as pale lime green blooms, the blossoms gradually transform throughout the growing season and take on some pinks or lavender and white until the blossoms fade to tan for the autumn. Producing huge 8″ green flowers which are held atop strong, non-flopping stems. The cut blooms are perfect in floral arrangements or can be dried for long-term décor. Blooming on new wood, this new compact hybrid has flowers that last over 16 weeks in the garden or 3 weeks as cut flowers!
Developed so you can fit it in any spot in your garden, this easy-to-grow, widely adaptable and popular Little Lime® is not difficult to fit into your landscape plans. It matures to 3′-5′ with an equal spread so it’s perfect for urban landscapes and large expenses alike.
Fantastic hedges and privacy as a row or grouping, the bright color is sure to turn heads and garner your home well deserved attention when used as a buffer between the sidewalk and your yard, or along your property lines to keep nosy neighbors at bay with a friendly living fence. The lush foliage is perfect as a backdrop for other plants as well! Plant as a screening wall around your seating and entertaining areas for privacy from the world around you.
Ideal as front yard foundation plantings and en masse, as well as a single, solitary specimen plant to brighten a garden bed or border! Cottage gardens and pollinator borders, garden anchors and large planters all gain a bright flowering shrub that provides winter interest and is so easy to care for!
The best and strongest growth in full sun and partial shade, favoring morning sun and afternoon shade in the hottest of the USDA growing zones 3 to 8. Plant Panicle Hydrangea in moderate, and consistent moisture and enriched organic soil. Panicle Hydrangeas bloom on new wood and need to be pruned back in late spring to encourage branching and blossoming.
