Product Description

The Dwarf Tree with Giant Blooms

Why Limelight Hydrangea Trees?

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 pack the dwarf's branches the whole summer. Its reputation for ravishing blooms has thrust this little-but-fierce tree into the limelight the past few years, earning the 'best performer' title from many enthusiasts.

Whether the Limelight Hydrangea Tree is planted in a container, on the patio or in the garden, it offers the perfect accent to practically any planting location. Plus, you can bring some of the Limelight's freshness indoors by creating colorful flower arrangements that will brighten any room. Dry and preserve some of your favorite blooms to keep them on hand after season's end - it's the perfect way to keep summer alive.

Why is Better

Best of all? It's a healthy specimen that's resistant to most diseases and pests and tolerant to drought. 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.

That's because we've nurtured your Limelight from day one, long before it even ships to your door. Other nurseries (if they even offer this unique specimen) stock bare-root varieties. But your Limelight is delivered with healthy roots in nutrient-rich soil.

A popular favorite because of its compact size, beauty, and magnificent floral production, the Limelight Hydrangea Tree goes fast. Get yours today!

I'm adding photos to my good review

I forgot to add photos. I love that these looked amazing during the heat of our Missouri summer. The photos were taken in July, the first year after planting them the previous August. The photo might make it look like it is planted in a container, but ours is planted in the ground. They seem to be pretty low maintenance, which I love.

I am happy with this purchase

It's been over a year and our tree has done well with very little effort. It arrived with lopsided branches and growth but it is still charming. I ordered this tree online because I had not ever heard of it before but since then I have seen several around our neighborhood. The blooms flourished for many months this year and I received a lot of compliments from people walking by. It took a beating in a storm and that is when it stopped blooming so prettily but I noticed that everyone else's did as well.

Limelight Hydrangea Tree

Fantastic, fast delivery, great size, very healthy!

Arrived healthy

Tree was planted upon arrival and watered well, it’s blooming now and is doing good, I planted it in a place where it gets about 5 hours of sun and half of the tree gets even less so one side is alittle lopsided with blooms (one side has more than the other) I plan to transplant to a more sunnier place for it to be more happy. The reason for the 4 starts is that I saw same tree at my local nursery for $37 cheaper (including shipping you’d save on) so check your local nursery before buying. Wish I did. Other then that I am satisfied with this tree, the blooms are beautiful and I plan to buy two more limelight hydrangeas but in bush form.

Limelight Hydrangea purchase

My first Limelight Hydrangea Tree arrived in bad shape, leaves and branches were all dead, but after contacting customer service a new one was shipped out immediately. Arrived quickly and looks beautiful. Very healthy and lots of flowers. Very pleased with it and with the customer service experience.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Filtered shade with 4 to 6 hours of sun is ideal for the best performance as far as sun exposure goes, and well-drained soil is important. When you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice the size and just as deep as the root ball. Hold the tree straight as you begin to backfill, tamping down the soil as you go. Apply water to settle the soil and remove the air pockets then mulch to retain soil moisture.

2. Watering: Provide a good soaking of the soil 2 to 3 times each week. If you're not sure when to water, however, simply check your soil about 2 inches down - if the soil is dry here, it's time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a slow-release, balanced fertilizer formula, like 10-10-10 or 16-16-16, and follow the application instructions on the label.

4. Pruning: Prune your Limelight Hydrangea Tree in fall or spring, before new growth emerges. You can also remove any dead or diseased areas during the year, as needed.
