More about the Limelight Hydrangea...
As the dog days of August set in and most flowering plants peter out from their long summer performance, one shrub will take center stage in your landscape or garden with a commanding presence simlar to that of the Chinese Snowball Viburnum: ‘Limelight’ Hydrangea. With its spectacular, 8-12 inch size snowcone-shaped flower clusters, Limelight puts on a spectacular show of color in the summer garden with large flowers that emerge a creamy-chartreuse color persisting but fading to deep pink in the fall. Soil pH does not effect its bloom color and it is adaptable to different soil types. As an added bonus, Limelight blooms make great cut flowers for use in both fresh or dried floral arrangements.
Limelight Hydrangea can be grown as a shrub or small tree and is useful as a specimen, in groupings, as a background, or as a colorful hedge in perennial and shrub borders.
Culture & Care Tips
Limelight can take the heat at our location in mid-Georgia, but is also exceptionally cold hardy, withstanding even the coldest winter temperatures in the North. In the South, it's best to plant Limelight in a location where it will receive some shade in the afternoon. For best blooming give it at least 6 hours of sun a day.

Same beautiful plantSeptember 5th 2012
My Limelight Hydrangea came in very good condition and I'm hoping it will survive the heat we have here in Texas. I love the chartreuse color. I corresponded with Spencer by email and he told me to plant it where it will get some afternoon shade so I planted it on the east side of my house.
