It is compact and dwarf in habit, and the flowers cover every inch of the plant right down to the ground. This plant was developed by Johan Van Huylenbroeck, the same breeder that developed Pinky Winky®

|Hydrangea macrophylla 'McKRed'
Grateful Red Hydrangea

Dwarf ‘Limelight’ hydrangea!
Compared to its famous sibling ‘Limelight’, Little Lime hardy hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata) may seem like a pipsqueak. Don’t let this petite shrub fool you. While maintaining its short stature of 3-5’ tall and wide, it really packs a visual punch in the garden. In summer, lime green blooms open on strong stems – no drooping here. As it ages, rich pink coloring emerges to prolong the show through fall.
Little Lime hydrangea is small enough to grow in containers and also stands out as a bold mass planting. Its bright bloom coloration makes it an excellent choice for cut flower gardens and can be used fresh or dried. This reliable performer blooms on new wood, so a quick trim in late winter or early spring will encourage fresh growth and an abundance of buds. Like most hardy hydrangeas, it is hardy to Zone 3 and does best in full sun or part shade.
Summer flowers open soft green and turn pink and burgundy in fall.

Little Lime® Hydrangea paniculata ‘Jane’ USPP 22,330, Can 3,914
This stunning hydrangea is a bit of a prodigy. We were looking for a hydrangea like the old favorite ‘Annabelle’, but one that wouldn’t flop over. We found it…and it had supersized blooms, too!
This adaptable native plant produces huge flowers (as much as 12″ across) and is both reliable and beautiful. Flowers open green, then mature to white before turning green at the end of their life cycle. Very cold hardy, Incrediball blooms on new growth so even very cold winters won’t keep it from blooming. The flowers are held upright on very sturdy stems, so they don’t flop like ‘Annabelle’ will.
Massive flowers bloom in summer, and are held up by very sturdy stems. Very hardy and reliable. Good for cut flowers. Native.

Landscapes, naturalizing, perennial gardens. Also makes a very dramatic cut flower.
Prune back by one-third its total height in early spring to encourage strong new growth and flowering. Do not cut it back to the ground! Flower color is not affected by soil pH. Best in moist, well drained soil but adapts to most sites. Avoid excessive and high nitrogen fertilizers – one application of a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants (like a rose fertilizer) is sufficient for the year.
