Description / Hydrangea Little Lime Punch® Panicle Hydrangea

Little Lime Punch® Hydrangea, from Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs, is a stunning addition to your garden. This deciduous woody shrub is a year-round showstopper, boasting continuous blooms that grace your landscape from midsummer until the first frost. With its pyramidal panicle flower blooms on new wood, Little Lime Punch® ensures a season-long floral display that captures attention.

The Rubenesque flower clusters undergo a stunning transformation, starting as vibrant lime green before transitioning to shades of light pink and Hawaiian Punch red. This merry mix of flower colors sits atop long, thick stems adorned with large, serrate, dark green leaves. As fall arrives, the foliage takes on hues of yellow and gold, occasionally tinged with reddish-purple, adding to the visual spectacle.

But the allure doesn't end with the frost; Little Lime Punch® Hydrangea continues to captivate in winter. After the first frost, the flower clusters turn into elegant tones of tan and caramel, adding a delightful touch to your winter garden. The mature plants reveal a beautiful textural element with shredding and peeling papery brown bark, showcasing glimpses of the underlying cinnamon hue of stems and branches. In a snowy landscape, it becomes a picturesque focal point.

This multi-functional shrub goes beyond aesthetics. Its hollow stems serve as nesting habitats for bees, contributing to the biodiversity of your garden. Panicle hydrangeas, known for their toughness and cold hardiness, are among the easiest hydrangeas to grow. Little Lime Punch® feels right at home in hot, humid summers and thrives in cooler temperatures as well.

With a compact, upright habit featuring semi-arching branches and a rapid growth rate, this hydrangea paniculata variety is a standout performer in Zones 7-8 with morning sun and afternoon shade, while also adapting well to full to part sun in Zones 3-6. Little Lime Punch® Hydrangea prefers rich, loamy, moist, well-draining soil but displays remarkable adaptability to various conditions, including alkaline and clay soils.

Encourage abundant blooms by applying fertilizer in early spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge. Little Lime Punch® is generally pest-resistant and more sun and drought-tolerant than other hydrangeas. Additionally, it thrives in urban areas, displaying tolerance to air pollution.

Elevate your garden with the enchanting beauty and resilience of Little Lime Punch® Hydrangea ? a hydrangea paniculata that promises year-round allure and ease of care. Transform your outdoor space with this Proven Winners® gem that embodies nature's artistry. Harvest blooms for vibrant dried flower arrangements, and watch as they emerge lime green, turning brown and adding an artistic touch to your floral displays.
