Little Lime Hydrangea, a dwarf Limelight Hydrangea, is a beautiful, unique shrub that fits into any size garden and provides season-long interest.
I purchased this in the spring (with a gift certificate my sweet friend gave me for my birthday – yay!) to use in our small half-circle bed around the gravel patio in the back yard. That is a bed that we can see this from all the back windows of the house as well as when we’re eating outside.
I’m enjoying every stage of Little Lime’s development. The blossoms start out as, well, a lime green – ok, it’s named well. And it continues to put out new blossoms through the season, similar to Endless Summer.
As it matures, the blossoms start to take on a pink hue, which continue to change over time to a greenish-white color with subtle pink highlights.
Little Lime hydrangea is super easy to dry at that stage, too – just cut and set them in containers to enjoy all through the winter months. Fall decor, done!
This little bush sits in the same garden bed as a Pee Gee Hydrangea that’s been trained into a tree (you can just see it at the top of the first photo). It’s blossoms are white, but it also turns pink-green-mauve by the end of the season. These two bushes are really complimenting each other in this bed – it’s one of my favorite beds in our yard!
Do you grow this Little Lime hydrangea variety or another you love?
