About two years ago I had an area in my garden that I needed to do some replanting. I chose to plant Limelight hydrangeas. These look very much like an Oak Leaf Hydrangea with it's pointed blooms but the Limelight's are a longer lasting bloom opening up a chartreuse green and the longer it remains on the bush it will turn white. Both work magnificently in an arrangement or just several in a vase of water. And, of course, the color goes in any room of my house.
They just cover themselves in blooms. I have three planted directly behind my house mixed in with some Heirloom Roses, antique daylilies and various other plant material. Limelights will provide me with several months of blooms to bring inside.
If your area is zoned for Limelight Hydrangeas I would suggest that you plant some in your garden. They will bring you a great deal of pleasure.
