My Rising Sun
Planted in the Fall of 2012 as a 5' - 15 gallon potted tree.
This pic was taken in late August.

I have many for trade in 10 gallon 5'-6'

I know the patent holder of The Rising Sun and the tree is about 20' and 15' diameter. It loves fertilizer and continues to put out prolific growth throughout the growing season.

Forcing Hydrangea Paniculata 'Limelight'

posted by: flowercutter on 11.10.2013 at 07:55 am in Hydrangea Forum

I grow many hydrangea paniculata 'limelight' to
cut flowers. I am in Virginia. Most of the blooms come in the summer so I have extended the season by pruning some of the plants in June to extend the season into October. Now I am going to force the plants to bloom in May and June by taking some of the plants that are in containers from the cold in February to a heated greenhouse.
Has anyone done this? Does anyone know how many cold hours
a Hydrangea paniculata needs to start growing and flowering again? I am thinking it will take 90 days to bloom once they are put into the greenhouse. Thanks!
