Hydrangea Paniculata Little Lime
Sturdy growing, graceful in habit. Little Lime is a shorter growing Paniculata that makes an excellent focal point as well as a great natural hedge.
The very profuse huge flower clusters are greenish-white to bright lime-green, later turning to rich deep pink. The blooming season lasts from late July through autumn.
The foliage is deep green, turning to yellow-green or less often red-purple during autumn.
This hardy shrub is a wonderful late-summer performer, its creamy flower cones flushing pink as they age. The foliage turns a nice shade of custard in autumn and the creamy-beige bare branches and dried flower heads look elegantly skeletal in winter.
Such a grand shrub can stand on its own but in a border it combines well with late-summer bloomers such as Agapanthus 'Bressingham Blue' or Japanese anemones.
With an eventual spread of 1m and height of 1.2m, this hydrangea is excellent. It can cope with full sun or partial shade but is not overly fussed about soil type.
Grown in 3 litre pot.
