Buying Tip

Make sure the leaves and branches on your tree match or closely resemble, what you are seeing in yards around you. If they are not naturally blooming in your area don’t buy blooming plants from a nursery.

Zone Tip

Limelight Hydrangea trees are known for tolerating cold winters as well as warm summers. This is why this variety is so popular and can be found in a variety of climates. They are known to do best in Zones 3-8.

Sun or Shade Tip

By rule of thumb if you are in a cooler zone such as zones 4-6, they will do best in 6 hours of direct sunlight. But for zones 7-8, which tend to be more intense, they need partial sun to do best. 

Planting Tip

We chose to plant ours in our front yard, in a container, that receives full sun for 6 hours or more of the day. This is because we are located in Zone 5b.

Soil Tip

They do typically prefer soil with a neutral to acidic pH. But unlike some other hydrangea varieties, the soil pH does not change the color of their blooms.

Container Tips

Ours is planted in an old wooden tree form right next to our front door! A large container is recommended for the size of this tree. The same care is recommended for this tree no matter where it is planted.

Size Tip

These trees can get up to 6-8 feet tall and sometimes taller. They are still technically classified as a dwarf tree. Their span can get as wide as 7 feet but pruning and shaping helps this tree stay manageable for it’s space.
