In a 3 gallon container, 14-16 inches in diameter
Little Lime has a lit-from-within celadon green bloom that reminds us of an elegant English garden, surrounded by ivy, moss and every color green. But this dwarf version of the popular Limelight variety, is easygoing, too and can be grown in casual mass plantings or containers. The mid-summer blooms look clean and fresh in the heat of summer and eventually change to a blush of deep pink and burgundy as they age and fall temps drop.
Yours will do best in full sun to part shade and will grow up to 3-5ft tall. Little Lime blooms on new wood, which means you’ll want to prune about a third of the height in late fall to late winter, before new stems and buds emerge.
We like to give ours a dose of Elements in spring and fall to enhance next year’s flowering.
