Suntory Texas Summer Double

You might have heard about or seen the spectacular hydrangea, Limelight. It boasts huge, full, pyramidal blooms on large bushes. Up until now, you might have had to admire it from afar, because it wouldnŐt fit in your smallish garden.

Get to know Little LimeȘ Hydrangea. It is everything you Love about Limelight in a smaller package. The name describes the hue of the blooms, a pale lime green in mid-summer, then pink, fading to beige in winter, no matter what the pH of your soil.

Little LimeȘ Hydrangea is a dwarf form only reaching 3 to 5 feet when fully grown. At one-third the size of other hardy hydrangeas, it fits well into any landscape. Strong stems are also inherited from Limelight, important in keeping the large flower heads standing tall.

Like its larger cousin, Little LimeȘ is also very drought tolerant. With its smaller size and tolerance to city pollution, Little Lime will thrive even in inner city environments. Try it in containers. Hardy in zones 3-8
