Hydrangeas are deciduous shrubs that are prized for their pretty flowers. They work well in borders, as specimen plants, or planted in rows to create hedging. Their size lends them to being grown on the back row of a flower bed against a fence or wall. This green cultivar grows to between six and ten feet at maturity and has a long life expectancy. It blooms in the middle of summer, and its flowers will last right through to fall. The shrub produces dense clusters of flowers that are cone-shaped panicles. These panicles are full of both fertile and infertile small flowers, which when clustered together, can measure up to twelve inches long.
All of the flowers are lime green when they bloom, and the fertile flowers will remain lime green, while the sterile flowers become flushed with pink as the season wears on. Some hydrangeas will flower in a particular color depending on the pH of the soil, but this cultivar is reliably green irrelevant of soil acidity or alkalinity. It will thrive in full sun or partial shade and prefers a rich and well-draining soil that is kept consistently moist. This plant is tolerant of humidity and heat but would appreciate some shade during the afternoon in hotter climates.
