An outstanding cultivar with large flowers which start pale green before turning white and then red. Well branched, medium sized shrub 6 – 10 feet, with 8 being the average, and 5 to 8 feet wide. The flowers carry only sterile ray-flowers and the panicles are almost as big as those of ‘Grandiflora’, but ‘Limelight’ turns more to pink than does ‘Grandiflora’ according to Van Gelderen. The trials report from Wisley said Excellent cultivar
