Invincibelle Limetta® Hydrangea arborescens 'NCHA8' USPPAF
Invincibelle Limetta® hydrangea is the easy way to experience refreshing summer color every year. It's as reliable as the classic 'Annabelle,' but offers big-time improvements, like strong stems that hold the blooms upright all season, and a dwarf, rounded habit that makes it perfect to plant anywhere, from foundations to flower gardens. Re-bloomer. Dwarf variety.
In early summer, spheres of lime green flowers appear. They lighten to a soft green-white before turning jade green for the rest of the season. They last clear through frost for a persistent show that takes practically no effort on your part - they are great for both fresh and dried cut flowers. Low Maintenance. For the most abundant flowers, it's recommended that the Limetta have at least 6 hours of sun each day.
PRUNING YOUR ARBORESCENS HYDRANGEA:
Flowers on new wood or current season’s growth, so they can be severely pruned after fall frost and still flower the following summer. In fact, some growers cut their arborescens to the ground each winter in order to have flower heads on three to four foot straight stems the next summer.
