Hydrangea paniculata 'Little Lime' is a hardier and more compact version of Hydrangea 'Limelight'. Its flowers are still impressive however producing large domed clusters of lime-green flowers which fade to pale cream and become pink-blushed as the season progresses. The flowers sit proud of the foliage on long, strong, upright stems. The deep-green foliage provides the perfect foil for the flowers and takes on golden-yellow tones in autumn for additional seasonal colour.
Hydrangea 'Little Lime' is remarkably hardy and will grow in most aspects including north-facing; it is also highly productive for its size. It grows to a maximum height and spread of 1.5m so is suitable for smaller gardens or container growing and offers excellent seasonal variety and colour. Plant in full sun or partial shade for the best flowering and in well-drained soil of any type except alkaline / chalky.
Pruning if required should be carried out in late winter or early spring before new growth emerges. Hydrangea 'Little Lime' flowers on new growth so pruning back quite hard to around 3 or 4 buds will ensure that this is healthy and productive for the coming summer. If grown in a container, make sure to water more often as it will dry out quicker. Mulch or compost applied annually around the base will help the shrub to thrive.
