Limelight Hydrangea Or Is It?

Look At My Hydrangea Pictures!
The Hydrangea Pictures on this page were taken in our yard in Pendleton, South Carolina. I really am not sure what variety we have. Let me tell you about it and maybe you can help me decide.It was over 30 years ago when my husband and I visited his aunt and uncle in Laurens, South Carolina and I first saw a Limelight Hydrangea in full bloom. "Uncle Jamie" called it a Mountain Hydrangea so that is what I have always called it until I began writing this page and found out that it is actually a Limelight Hydrangea, I think.It was love at first sight so "Uncle Jamie" broke off two sticks that looked like dead branches and told me to take them home and put them in water and forget about them until spring. I did exactly what he told me and was so shocked when springtime came and I had two sticks with roots everywhere. I couldn't wait to get them in the ground and they have continued to grow and bring much pleasure to us all of these years.Whatever it is called, we sure have enjoyed it.Could you help me decide once and for all the name of our Hydrangea?Photo by Ohme - Notice the little critter!

Look closely! do you see a critter? Some people call him a Carolina Anole. He looks like he was posing for my camera, doesn't he?

Do you have a favorite color of Hydrangea? I like whatever is blooming.
We have several different varieties in our yard and I really enjoy them all. I would like to add to ours but probably have about all we can manage now.
This Gardener's Guide to Hydrangeas would be very helpful in distinguishing which variety is which.
Pee Gee Hydrangeas
Limelight Hydrangea is one of the Pee Gees
The Pee Gee hydrangea is a type of paniculata hydrangea.and Limelight is one of the most popular Pee Gees. Pee Gee Blossoms are large and Cone Shaped. Their color starts with shades of green, then white, then purple tints and finally a beautiful rusty autumn gold. Their color is not affected by the PH of the soil like the mop head Hydrangeas.

My Florist Friend, Karen Link, Made This Beautiful Arrangement - With Hydrangea and Zinnias From Her Yard
My arrangement using hydrangea, ginger lilly and acuba - I love the white and green
This hydrangea picture is from the Hydrangea in my yard along with a couple of stalks of Ginger Lilly and several branches of Acuba. The Acuba Foliage does so well in an arrangement and I like to leave it in the water after I remove the dead flowers and let it root. I have them in several places around our yard and enjoy using them in the house. Of course, the smell of the Ginger Lilly really is nice in the house.
