Questions & Answers

Can this be planted in sun?

Asked by: anita
I'm just now trying to develop a green thumb, but it's my understanding that this plant family likes morning or east sun best. We have it where it will get some sun but also receive some protection from some nearby deciduous trees. So far so good, but again we're novices on plants.

Our Limelight Hydrangea does not look healthy

See below pics, we planted our 3 Gal Limelight Hydrangea early May in Atlanta, GA, and it bloomed great but then in July & early August the leaves turned yellowish and now they are spotted and have holes in them so they don't look healthy at all. The blooms also discolored and don't look to healthy. See pics. It's planted in full sun and temperatures reach 85F and sometimes 90F in the afternoon. What should I do?
Asked by: thebighash
Hi thebighash, I showed our growers your photos. They don't think you should worry about your Limelight Hydrangea just yet. It may be that it is going into dormancy early. Normally Limelights bloom in late summer through early fall. If it was blooming as early as May, it just may be that your hydrangea is ahead of schedule and thinks its time to go dormant. The blooms and leaves will discolor like this every late fall. The best thing to do is to let it be for now and just make sure that the soil around it doesn't dry out (it should only be moist, not wet to the touch). If you have any questions, please call our hotline (734) 654- 7485. Best regards, Fallon

Can these be planted in the Orlando FL area and thrive

Asked by: KariZ
Hi KariZ, it may be difficult for Limelight to survive in Orlando because it has a hardiness zone of 9, and Limelight is hardy to zone 8. We do have some Proven Winners hydrangeas that are hardy in your zone, such as our Gatsby hydrangeas. If you have any other questions, feel free to call us at (734) 654-7485. Thanks, Hailee
