Because green never goes out of style!

Lime Rickey hydrangea is an outstanding native hydrangea with large, disc-like blooms. The flowers start out a fresh green and age to rich jade, all accented with pink pollen for a unique accent. The stems on this hydrangea are exceptionally strong, and unlike 'Annabelle,' hold up to even the strongest summer storms without bending or flopping. We've seen this plant withstand 2" of rainfall in one hour, completely unphased! It makes an excellent cut flower and dries well, too. And because it's a super hardy smooth hydrangea, you can rely on it to bloom every year no matter where you plant it, no matter how you prune it.
