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.

Looking good!

Very impressed with the quality of trees I received! I bought two and they arrived quickly, well packaged and in great condition! It’s been approximately two weeks since I planted them and they look bigger and better everyday! I was very skeptical about ordering live trees online, after doing so I can’t imagine a better way! Tree’s delivered directly to my door, doesn’t get more convenient than that! 5-star quality highly recommend!

Limelight Hydrangea Highlights Landscape

Hydrangea arrived in good condition. After 2 months it has leafed out and is doing well. Obviously a lot smaller than the pictured tree. Will see how growth continues in the next 24 months.

Limelight Hydrangea Tree

Ok and a little scary. It went into total shock when I planted it, with most of the existing growth dying off. I been giving it a lot of TLC and it's getting a lot of new growth, thankfully. I'm looking forward to growth and future flowers.

Planted about 2 weeks ago and seems to be doing well. However the tree was damaged during shipping. Several branches broken and lots of wilted leaves. Somehow the tree was delayed during shipping and it took 5 days for it to arrive after being shipped from store. I talked with customer service and they were very accommodating! I sent pictures to them and they gave me a substantial credit. They said to give the tree a chance but if it did not survive they would make things right. So far the tree looks like it is going to do well. I definitely will be using this company again! They have beautiful products, great prices for what you get and fantastic customer service!!!!
