Dwarf Varieties of Hydrangea
Diana Carbonell | On 16, Nov 2012
Because hydrangea bushes can grow up to six feet in height, they are typically relegated to outdoor planting. As a city-dweller, you are probably thinking a hydrangea bush is not for you. Think again, because this flowering bush comes in dwarf-sized varieties that require very little room to bloom!
Dwarf varieties of plants mimic their bigger cousins, but are suitable for planting in tight spaces. Dwarf hydrangeas have been particularly successful in generating big blooms, so this week, we’re giving you the skinny on the best breeds.
Invincibelle Spirit Hydrangea
This hydrangea is known for offering blushing-pink flowers and generous blooms. You can expect it to grow between three to four feet tall. Plant it outside in the sunlight; it’s known to attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
‘Little Lime’ Hydrangea
Even though this is a dwarf variety, it offers blossoms that are bigger than most people’s heads! The “Little Lime” bush grows heartily in a tight space, so you’ll never sacrifice blooms for size. This dwarf variety will grow between 35 to 60 inches tall.
Let’s Dance Hydrangea
There are several sub-breeds of the “Let’s Dance” flower. What do they all have in common? They’re each reblooming hydrangeas that can be grown on old or new wood. They grow two to three feet tall and can easily be planted indoors.
