The Limelight is fading

Limelight hydrangea early October

Autumn is coming to this Limelight hydrangea.

Limelight hydrangea early OctoberUsually this hydrangea will turn a deep dark pink but this one is just a year old and our weather was very cool all summer. That probably has something to do with it’s lack of Autumn color. I still think it’s beautiful.

Limelight hydrangea early OctoberBut look here—-there are a few tinges of pink…….it’s cause this bloom isn’t laying so close to the ground like the others. I look forward to seeing it next year. Do you have Autumn pictures of the Limelight? I’d love to see them. Post about it and I’ll link to it.

    Gulf Muhly is on my list of things to get, and Susie has promised. That is a beautiful combo.

    Oh the added interest that some plants bring to the gardens!! My raspberry blast that I cut back now has flowers of all of the pinks that were on the original plant!

  4. Love your new blog design. You won’t believe this, but I don’t have ‘Limelight.’ I should but I don’t have that much shade, and I have a lot of Hydrangeas. Are you going to the Dallas GWA next year? I hope so.~~Dee

  7. As you say, it’s still pretty, even with the tinges of brown. Fits the season well–cinnamon, cider, falling leaves.
