'Limelight' panicle hydrangea (Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight')

Genus:  Hydrangea
This variety of the popular panicle hydrangea boasts very large, lime green blooms in mid-summer that turn pink in fall. A deciduous shrub, it grows to 8 feet tall and 6 feet wide with large, mid-green leaves. The blooms make good cut and/or dried flowers, but can be left on the plant for winter interest.
Care:  Provide full sun or partial shade and fertile, moist, well-drained soil in USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 8. For best flowering, prune back to a few buds shy of major framework in early sping, since flowering occurs on new growth.
Propagation:  Root softwood cuttings in summer or hardwood cuttings in winter.
Problems:   Powdery mildew, rust, and leafspots are common.
