Chartreuse, lacy flowers.

Hydrangea paniculata Magical® Lime Sparkle

A panicle hydrangea in the perfect size, with perfectly formed green flowers that change to magical shades of green and red as the nights cool.

Lime Sparkle is different. It's not too short to be seen or too tall to hide stuff. The flowers begin in early June as lacy lime green panicles and open up and age throughout the summer to apple green and then celery green with a candy apple red blush once the nights get cooler. 

Where there is space, plant in groups of 3-5 to make a dramatic impression. A mid-size grower, Lime Sparkle can be planted with evergreen shrubs and perennials to achieve a desirable balance in texture and appearance.

This panicle hydrangea, in our opinion, is a perfect size. Whether you are looking for backbones for a sunny border, or the ultimate, people-height hedge to gently divide a space or keep the neighbors out, Lime Sparkle delivers what many new introductions can not.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
