A Gentle Form of Privacy: A Row of Limelight Hydrangea: Occupy the Eyes with Beauty
We often point out that while the most complete privacy is accomplished by a row of Conifers, such as the Green Giant Thuja, there are other good alternatives. Our eyes are inherently lazy and tend to fixate on the first interesting thing they encounter. Such is a row of beautiful big flowers which bloom from July until the dry flowers pruned back in the Spring.
The Limelight Hydrangea can make any of us look like master gardeners without possessing any such skills. They are just naturally well growing and heavy flower producers. Although some deer repellant may make sense in the Spring and spraying with insecticides a couple of times a year.
The picture shows a row of Limelight Hydrangeas in late October. Besides beauty they also provide a good bit of privacy. In year three they are expected to grow to their maximum height of around 7’.Almost every high end landscape design of the last few years will incorporate Limelight Hydrangeas.
