Product Information

Impress your friends and neighbours by adding this unusual lime-green flowered hydrangea into your summer planting schemes.

Full of designer style, Hydrangea ‘Lime Rickey’ is one of those shrubs that no garden should be without - the large, domed flowerheads of palest green cover this trendy, must-have shrub all through summer, creating a stunning contrast to its luxurious, dark green leaves.

Transitioning from fresh lime-green in midsummer to white as the season progresses, the long-lasting blooms make fabulous cut flowers in both fresh and dried arrangements and are also amazing when left on the plants over winter, where their skeletal forms create beautiful architectural shapes when covered in frost.

Also known as the smooth hydrangea, wild hydrangea, or sevenbark, ‘Lime Rickey’ is a cool-coloured specimen plant which creates a striking contrast to rich purples or fiery reds. Easy-to-grow this hydrangea is happy in sun or partial shade and makes a particularly striking plant for a container - either on its own or with other perennials such as salvias.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot.

Top Tips

Hydrangeas do not like to dry out. In dry weather, soak the roots with a hose and the plant will usually recover, and in any case, water regularly until plants are fully established.

Care Information

Really low maintenance.
Prefers compost-enriched soil that stays moist.
Can be planted in sun or light shade.

Pruning:
Leave the faded hydrangea flower heads in place until the new buds swell in spring to protect the delicate buds from frost damage. when they can be removed - cutting back the flowered stems to a strong pair of buds.
Remove any branches that are damaged or dead as well as any that are misplaced.
After pruning hydrangeas, apply a mulch of well-rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant.
Once established, remove a quarter to a third of the shoots to the base of the plant.
