Hydrangea arborescens ‘Lime Rickey’ – Smooth Hydrangea
Hardiness Zone: 3-9
Sun Exposure: Partial Sun to Shade
Water Usage: Moderate
Lime Rickey® Smooth Hydrangea is an outstanding native hydrangea with large, disc-like blooms. The flowers start out a fresh green and age to rich jade, all accented with pink pollen for a unique accent. The stems on this hydrangea are exceptionally strong, and unlike ‘Annabelle,’ hold up to even the strongest summer storms without bending or flopping. We’ve seen this plant withstand 2″ of rainfall in one hour, completely unphased! It makes an excellent cut flower and dries well, too. Deadheading is not necessary. And because it’s a super hardy smooth hydrangea, you can rely on it to bloom every year no matter where you plant it, no matter how you prune it.
Top three reasons to grow Lime Rickey hydrangea:
– blooms every summer, even in very cold areas.
– large, jade-green flowers are very long-lasting.
– exceptionally strong stems won’t flop, even after heavy rains.
