Hello friends! I have a new plant I’ve been wanting to share with you that I’m loving this season – a Little Lime Hydrangea, which is a dwarf version of Limelight Hydrangea.
I purchased this back in May (using a gift certificate my sweet friend gave me for my birthday – yeah!) to use in our small half-circle bed around the new gravel patio in the back yard. So I can see this from inside the house as well as when we’re eating outdoors.
I find I’m enjoying every stage of this plant’s development. The blossoms start out as, well, a lime green.
OK, it’s named well.
As it matures, the blossoms start to take on a pink hue, which will continue to darken over time from what I’ve seen in pictures. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the final blossom will look like – and bringing them in to dry and enjoy during the winter months.
This little bush sits in the same 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.
Do you have a favorite plant that you can share with us?
