The Dwarf Tree with Giant Blooms

Nothing says summer like huge, colorful blooms on a small tree.

That's exactly what the Limelight Hydrangea delivers season after season. But not just any blooms. The Limelight's floral display gets started early, in an eye-popping show sure to beautify your garden.

Pastel-like colors of pink, green and blue give way to white blooms later in the season.

The large, puffy flowers-too many to count-pack the dwarf's branches the whole summer through. It's a trait that over the past few years has earned this dwarf the best performer title from many enthusiasts.

Whether in a container, on the patio or in the garden, the Limelight Hydrangea offers the perfect accent to practically any planting location.

Keep Summer Alive by Preserving Beautiful Blooms

Bring some of the Limelight's freshness indoors by creating colorful flower arrangements that will brighten any room.

You can even dry and preserve some of your favorite blooms to keep them on hand after season's end.

A popular favorite because of its compact size, beauty and magnificent floral production, the Limelight Hydrangea goes fast. Get yours now before they're all gone.

More About the Little Tree that's in the Limelight

Although trained to be a dwarf, the Limelight Hydrangea can grow to about 8 feet if not pruned to maintain smaller heights. It's a healthy specimen-resistant to most diseases and pests. It also tolerates drought well and will require little in the way of care. Whether you're out in the country or on a city block, the Limelight Hydrangea will adapt to almost any setting and always steals the show.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Limelight Hydrangea Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Limelight Hydrangea Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Limelight Hydrangea Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Limelight Hydrangea Tree again after the transplant is complete.

I have a place next to my sidewalk that is in partial sun. This will fill that spot beautifully and survive our Ohio winters.
Donald G on Apr 23, 2017
Seems to be a rare specimen and very beautiful! The quality that Fast-Growing-Trees provides from start to finish can't be duplicated. How the plant(s) are packaged means a lot to me and the actual plant quality. Thanks this is my third purchase and I'm recommending this business to everyone!

I am very interested in the Limelight Hydrangea tree. It looks beautiful, I am in zone 6 --where I want to plant this tree is in the front off my home and it will get full afternoon west sun. Will the tree tolerate that much heat and sun? I purchased a Blooming white weeping cherry from FGT year before last, it is in the back of my home and doing beautiful, it actually bloomed the very first year, I planted in early spring, it is amazing how quickly it has growned--love it. I am looking for a shrub or tree to replace a shrub I lost in the front close to the house, does this draft hydrangea have shallow roots?
Memories A on Apr 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they can be planted in full sun to partial shade. They do have a shallow root system.
In Michigan some residential areas have a population of deer; especially in wooded areas. My question to you is, are the Hydrangea trees resistant to deer? Thanks. Lee - Canton MI.
Lee F on Mar 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hydrangea's are not deer resistant.
how and when do you trim to keep smaller? Do you have to cut off the blooms to keep the tree smaller?
Carol W on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. The tree will have blooms for 4 months. It is completely dormant-looking in winter. So, you would prune in the fall or spring when the tree is bare.
My dwarf Limelight Tree was planted in August. Now that it is Fall-winter approaching (reside in Warren, MI should I protect this specimen from the harsh weather to come?
Judy S on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The roots have had time to get established. As an extra precaution, you could mulch around it
How would this grow in a shady area?
vickie on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will grow in shady areas.
I planted this tree in June and love it. I live in Pittsburgh and wondering what I need to do for the winter. Do I cut off old flowers?
Janis on Oct 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Janis, We planted our tree in May or June also. That is a good question. Our blooms have turned brown so we plan to remove them. We love the tree and would purchase again.
I'm sorry I wasn't more help !
Can this tree be grown in zone 9B?
Eliecer C on Jul 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Eliecer,
I live in Connecticut, which is considered Zone 7 because it can get very cold here in the winter. I bought this tree over a year ago and it flowered/bloomed the first year. This year it's gotten a bit bigger, and now full of leaves with signs of new blooms coming out. I think zone 9 should be fine for this tree. I am planning to buy another for my front garden.
The location in my yard where I would like to plant this tree gets about 2 hours of direct sunlight around noon. The rest of the day is shaded by house or tree. Will it do well or does it need more sun to develop lots of blooms?
Mark B on May 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have several hydrangea bushes in various locations in my yard. They get at least 6 hours of sunlight and do well. But to be sure if would Google hydrangea care just to be sure. I'm sure the tree needs as much sun as the bush.
What is the. Bloom time. In zone 7.?
Frenchy on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am in zone 6 --the bloom time here is the last of May or the first of June. This is a beautiful tree and booms up until September. I planted it in the ground and enjoy its beauty so very much. I mulch it in the winter. You will not regret spending the money for this plant--it is a real eye catcher
Enjoy!.
Do the leaves stay green all year, or do they fall off and the tree looks like a regular hydrangea in the wintertime…rough?
Rachael T on Feb 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The dried blooms last a long time but the leaves will fall off completely and look stark.
It's almost February here in New Jersey. Can the Limelight Hydrangea Tree be planted now in winter?
Tony P. on Jan 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Planting in fall/winter/early spring, while they are in their dormant stage helps them get their roots, established without having to give nutrients to the rest of the tree. Also, with extra care you can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.
when will be back in stock?
Bill R on Jun 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We will have them in April 2017
Do I need to fertilize this tree?
Linda C on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Fertilize your hydrangeas once or twice in the summer prior to August. Apply a good time release fertilizer 1-2 times a year. Fertilize in zones 6-8 in May and July. If you live in zones 5 or north, one good fertilizing in June will suffice. Discontinue fertilizing if the plant appears wilted or unhealthy. Restore the Hydrangea back to health before any additional applications.
Is this too big to keep planted in a pot?
Erin C on Apr 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes and no. Since this plant doesn't have a huge root system when mature I think it would be fine. I'm just cautious because it requires plenty of water and I've never seen one in a pot permanently. Doesn't mean that it's not possible.
Can it be planted in a container?
Trish A on Mar 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can be planted in a container.
A deer ate the 2 white flowers on our tree after it was planted and no other flowers grew. We see a lot of leaves now and it is June 1. Will flowers return this year? What else can we do? The tree probably went into shock after the flowers were eaten. This will no longer happen due to out fences now to prevent deer. Will we see any flowers this season? In addition we placed burlap around the tree this winter and we are in climate 6.
