In the Garden {Limelight Hydrangeas}

 The limelight hydrangeas are on point in the front garden. I love the large white blooms.

As James Farmers says, "Green and white, always right!"

The myth, the legend, the plant: 'Limelight' hydrangea.

This unique panicle hydrangea revolutionized landscaping across North America. Huge, football-shaped flowers open in an elegant celadon green that looks fresh and clean in summer's heat. The blooms age to an array of pink, red, and burgundy which persists through frost for months of irresistible flowers. You can use 'Limelight' hydrangea just about any way you can imagine: as a showy flowering hedge, to screen off air conditioners, as an attention-getting specimen, in containers, flower gardens, or anywhere around your home. A long-time favorite of professional florists, it also makes an excellent cut flower, fresh or dried.

Top three reasons to grow 'Limelight' hydrangea:

  • - It's a time-tested classic that graces the yards of thousands of homes across North America
  • - Large flowers have a unique color that looks great with any style and color of house.
  • - Blooms every year, even in cold climates - winter doesn't faze it at all
Limelights, y'all!


  1. Limelights are gorgeous, and so easy to care for compared to the old-style varieties. I only had 1 limelight but several of the older variety. They look so gorgeous in your garden, Ron. I love your new robin door hanger too.

  2. Aren’t limelights a treasure! They do well up here too! I love them but ours aren’t blooming up here yet!
