Ah yes – just like me…..but of course I am referring to – Hydrangea paniculata “limelight”

Thank you The Growing Place !

They do well in containers or in ground and can be as wide as tall at about 6-8′.  Super easy to care for, prune and feed – an easy plant for a garden. You can let them go wild or prune them yearly to keep them in check. Ask Plant Specialists if they will work for you in your garden installation !

Plant Specialists is your garden care center – how spectacular are these hydrangeas in one of our rooftop landscape designs

By far one of my favorite plants for a garden – any garden – rooftop or in ground !  It is a slightly more compact cultivar that grows to 6-8′ tall and as wide. It produces large, cone-shaped panicles (8” across) that change color as they mature. A few of these flowers picked and placed in a vase will brighten up your home instantly. ! Great for any garden installation in NYC.

Garden installation in New York should offer privacy but also frame this wonderful city

Beautiful in any season.  Lush with soft chartreuse leaves in spring followed by spectacular pink hued flowers in fall. They do well in the toughest winter and have no issues with a hot summer muggy day !

Thank you white flower farms for this fantastic blushing bride

They get few to no bugs. ( plant health care at Plant Specialists can help if they do )  In my years working with them I have only seen one plant with a few spider mites and another with some green aphids – that’s it!  Oh but the bees and butterflies love them ! Now that’s an addition that is welcome in any rooftop landscape!
