Hydrangea-Smooth 'Lime Rickey®' - 3 Gal.

$54.99

Hydrangea arborescens 'Lime Rickey®'

Because green never goes out of style! Lime Rickey hydrangea is an outstanding native hydrangea with large, disc-like blooms. The flowers start out a fresh green and age to rich jade, all accented with pink pollen for a unique accent. The stems on this hydrangea are exceptionally strong, and unlike 'Annabelle,' hold up to even the strongest summer storms without bending or flopping. We've seen this plant withstand 2" of rainfall in one hour, completely unphased! It makes an excellent cut flower and dries well, too. And because it's a super hardy smooth hydrangea, you can rely on it to bloom every year no matter where you plant it, no matter how you prune it.

Seasonal Note: Many deciduous plants have started to go dormant for the season. You may experience yellow, spotted and dropping leaves. This is completely normal at this point in the season. Reach out if you have any questions!

Zone: 3 - 9

Mature Size: 4 - 5 ft High x 4 - 5 ft Wide

Current Size Est.: 12-24''

Growing Tips

Lime Rickey is an easy-care, practically foolproof 'Annabelle'-type hydrangea. We recommend pruning this type in early spring, just as the new growth begins to emerge on the stems. Cut the plant back by about one-third its total height, which serves to build a strong, supportive base while also encouraging new growth for abundant flowers. Fertilize, if desired, in early spring, once the ground has thawed. Use a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.
