    Pruning Plumed Hydrangea
    Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight' flowers on this year's wood. This means you can prune your hydrangea paniculata every spring to about 40 cm above ground level. This encourages strong, compact growth to about 1.75 metres. If you would prefer the shrub to grow large(r), pruning is not strictly necessary and unpruned, this shrub can reach 4 metres.

  • Specifics
  • Panicle Hydrangea 'Limelight' is a relatively new variety with huge white plumes in creamy white with green accents. They fade to brown.

    The shape of the plume on this variety of hydrangea is nothing more than a flower head where the middle continues growing out. It is really therefore related to the common hydrangeas with rounded flower heads as well as the flat ones (lacecaps) of hydrangea macrophylla.
