Lemon Daddy Hydrangea
Hydrangea with Brilliant Yellow Foliage
Lemon Daddy is a variety of Hydrangea beloved for its brilliant yellow foliage. It would make an excellent accent plant in your yard or place several along an outbuilding for a decorative, short hedge.
Summer/fall is your Lemon Daddy’s time to shine with its sun-kissed, yellow foliage and dramatic flower heads. It will certainly be a spectacle in your yard that turns heads all season long. The shiny foliage is sure to brighten up your landscape even when it’s not in bloom.
However from July until September the giant mophead flowers will make their appearance with 12-inch blooms creating an astonishing sight to see amid the shiny, yellow leaves.
The color of the flowers is dependent upon your soil ph (more blue in acid soils), but will be blue or pink accordingly.
Lemon Daddy is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub. It is a vigorous grower with a lovely rounded habit and loves heat and humidity. Once established, your Lemon Daddy will be a repeat performer and require very little care.
With optimal conditions, you can expect your Lemon Daddy to be with you for up to 20 years. Lemon Daddy not only has a lot to offer, but it offers it for a very long time.
