‘Little Lime’ a big performer
By Dave Harrison
December 2015 — ‘Little Lime’® hydrangea has been selected as the 2016 Plant of the Year by Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs. In summer, vibrant lime green blooms open on strong sturdy blooms…
As it ages, rich pink coloring emerges to prolong the show through the fall season. This reliable performer reaches 3-5’ tall and blooms on new wood, so a quick trim in late winter or early spring will encourage fresh growth and an abundance of buds. Hardy to Zone 3, this shrub does best in full sun or part shade.
In September 2015, Little Lime® hydrangea was awarded a Gold Medal from The Royal Boskoop Holticultural Society.
Other awards include a 2013 Plantarium Gold Medal, 2013 Green is Life Bronze Medal and 2011 American Nursery & Landscape Association (ANLA) Management Clinic Best New Plant award.
