Video: How to Prune a Limelight Hydrangea
Maintenance for limelight hydrangeas is easy, requiring just an annual pruning for optimal health.
Trim the old growth to a uniform size (we chose 18”). This creates a strong support system for blooms.
Trim thin and crooked stems and side-shoots for larger blooms on the main branches.
Cut stems that are crossing over or crowding one another
Tip & Source: Before you get started, sanitize pruners. We are using our favorite ARS pruners from Japan.
Limelight hydrangea is a staple in my small cutting garden. I use this plant fresh in both large floral installation projects and as a base layer in centerpieces and bouquets. Just edit the blossom as needed for the scale you are working on. It’s also a great plant to use dried in wreaths, permanent arrangements, and petal confetti.
