As if all this flower color weren't enough, the foliage turns bright red in autumn!
Terrific hardiness in the north!

Wonderful Huge Blooms the First Year
I planted six Limelights in a row, and the very first year they bloomed huge beautiful blooms. The second year the plant tripled in size and bloomed just as huge and beautiful. They are an amazing bright lime green and they last and last. I receive so many compliments throughout the summer. They are just jaw dropping. I wish I could upload a picture to this review they are amazing.
