Limelight Prime is an improved, more refined ‘Limelight’, with darker leaves, stronger stems, a more compact habit, and upright growth. It makes a great container plant. The blooms emerge a vivid lime-green and maintain that color until they transition into a bubblegum pink and then a deep punch pink. It also makes an excellent cut flower, fresh or dried. It is drought tolerant and blooms every year, even in cold climates.


Limelight Prime reaches 4-6 feet tall and 4 feet wide at maturity, it is hardy in zones 3-8. Plant in part sun (4+ hours daily) in southern climates and part to full sun in northern climates. Requires well-drained soils that do not remain soggy for any amount of time. To prune, simply cut back by one-third of its total height every spring. Fertilize with Proven Winners Continuous Release Plant Food in spring and mid-summer.

    Green shrubs.

    My first time buying Hydrangeas online. I was happy with the shrubs. It came in a perfect box and well watered and green plants when it arrived. I planted it in front of my house. Can't wait till it blooms next year.

    Received incorrect plant - still waiting for correct one

    Ordered 2 limelight prime / received 1 limelight prime and 1 bobo. Contacted customer support and was assured a limelight prime would be shipped out to me ASAP. Still waiting for the correct plant. First time ordering from PW direct - Sorry to say it maybe my last.

    Great service

    The two hydrangeas arrived in absolutely great shape. These were of a size and shape as good as if chosen in person. They have been in ground for about a week and show no signs of shock.

    It’s starting to bloom!

    It was so hot and dry for a while I waited to plant it until today. The plant is doing great, has new growth and is starting to bloom!
