Plus, you can bring some of the Limelight's freshness indoors by creating colorful flower arrangements that will brighten any room.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Filtered shade with 4 to 6 hours of sun is ideal for the best performance as far as sun exposure goes, and well-drained soil is important. When you're ready to plant, dig a hole twice the size and just as deep as the root ball. Hold the tree straight as you begin to backfill, tamping down the soil as you go. Apply water to settle the soil and remove the air pockets then mulch to retain soil moisture.

2. Watering: Provide a good soaking of the soil 2 to 3 times each week. If you're not sure when to water, however, simply check your soil about 2 inches down - if the soil is dry here, it's time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a slow-release, balanced fertilizer formula, like 10-10-10 or 16-16-16, and follow the application instructions on the label.

4. Pruning: Prune your Limelight Hydrangea Tree in fall or spring, before new growth emerges. You can also remove any dead or diseased areas during the year, as needed.
