Spring Pruning on Limelight Hydrangea
Hydrangea paniculata 'Limelight'

The paniculata hydrangeas are a genus of about 80 species of flowering plants native to Asia and North America. The name "paniculata" comes from the Latin word for "milk pail", referring to the shape of the inflorescences. These plants are popular garden shrubs, grown for their large, showy flower clusters. They are easy to care for, and will thrive in full sun or partial shade. Paniculata hydrangeas are a great choice for adding summer and fall color to your garden.

  • Cut back 1/3 to 1/2 in late winter or early spring before bud break
  • Flowers will bloom on new growth the same season
  • Leave spent flowers on in the fall for winter interest
