Whatever your personal preference, hydrangeas are a must have for every garden.
Little Lime Hydrangea
A dwarf form of the popular ‘Limelight’ that sports the same stunning flowers, but in a smaller package. Attractive green flowers in summer will turn pink in the fall. This variety is perfect for a shade garden and prefers moist, rich soil. It will grow to 3-4 ft. tall and 4-5 ft. wide.
Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea
The enormous blooms on this new introduction Hydrangea are a triple-dipped threat for your garden as the flowers change color three times as they bloom. Starting out creamy vanilla white, then soft pink and finally to a ripe strawberry red. Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea grow to 6-7 ft. tall and 5-6 ft. wide and bloom late summer through fall.

It will grow to 4-5 ft. tall and 4-6 ft. wide.
