Turn your landscape into a paradise by relying on these small superstar shrubs. Invincibelle Limetta® Hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens 'NCHA8') are a special offering by Proven Winners® and expertly grown by Nature Hills.
Limetta is a dwarf version of the world-famous Annabelle Hydrangea. Pretty lime green flowers emerge in early summer, and age to jade green.
You'll have blooms, blooms and more blooms for months from early summer through fall. Very strong stems won't flop over, even under the weight of the large blooms.
These sophisticated plants are high impact, but don't require any extra care. Limetta has been carefully field-tested for high performance and will bloom for you every year.
Smooth Hydrangeas are native to North America. Give this special variety a place of honor in your landscape.
After all, It's small enough to be used almost anywhere. The fantastic lime green-white blooms coordinate beautifully with other landscape plants and are perfectly offset by the dark green foliage.
The beauty of this selection is not only its smaller size, but also the fact that it continues to provide you with new flowers from summer into fall. Enjoy months of flowers in the landscape and in cut flower arrangements.
Limetta Hydrangea is super hardy, and easy to maintain in the landscape. They are pest free, cold hardy and heat tolerant.
These game changers sell out quickly, and no wonder. Invincibelle Limetta is an outstanding variety that reliably reblooms in landscapes all across the United States. Order yours now!
How to Use Invincibelle Limetta Hydrangea in the Landscape
Use it front and center in your garden design. Plant them near a high traffic area in either your front yard or backyard plantings.
Let them tie the look of your garden together. Whether you grow it in the ground, or use it in large outdoor containers, Limetta will brighten the look of your space.
These dwarf Hydrangeas makes a picture-perfect foundation planting. Try a pair of them on either side of the front door.
Limetta easily draws the eye with their striking flowers. Plant one as a pretty focal point near a special piece of garden sculpture to amplify the impact.
They'll be great as easy-care edging plants for taller shrubs in a shrub border. Use them as a backdrop in a perennial border.
Butterflies and helpful pollinators love the large, nectar-rich blooms of Limetta. Why not elevate the look of your veggie garden with a short row of Limetta shrubs on the "company side" of your patch?
Create a low hedge anywhere you like. Space them 3 feet apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.
Be sure to keep the faded blooms on all winter long for visual interest. It's just a quick "snip, snip, snip" in early spring and you are ready for a dazzling new season.
One thing is for sure. You'll never be without beautiful blooms for cut flower arrangements. Stock up on vases and enjoy decorating your tablescapes with these showy flowers.
#ProPlantTips for Care
For the sturdiest stems and most plentiful blooms, plant Limetta in full sun. You'll get the best performance with at least 6 hours of sun.
In hot climates, it's best to give your plant a planting site with morning sun and afternoon shade. Try a planting site on the east or southeast side of your home or taller evergreen trees.
However, don't plant Limetta in full shade positions. If they don't receive enough sunlight, they will develop thinner stems that may have trouble supporting the large flower heads. Full shade will also limit flower production.
Plant in well-drained soil. Elevate your planting with a raised bed, or plant in containers if you have poorly drained soil.
Give your plants a regular, even amount of water. Good watering is especially important as the flowers develop. They'll also want a long drink in fall to wind down the season before winter.
Top dress with mulch to keep the root systems nice and cool. Please pull mulch back from the crown of your plant by 6 inches for proper air circulation.
This variety has minimal pruning requirements. It blooms on new wood, so each year, you'll start over again.
Prune each stem down by a third in early spring, just as new growth begins to emerge on the stems. Cut back at a 45-degree angle right above an outward-facing bud.
Invincibelle Limetta's smaller size and showy display will accentuate your landscape all summer and fall. Order today!
