Limelight makes it through my northern PA winters, so I'm guessing you don't have to worry.

Your limelight looks great! I bought these 5 at walmart a couple weeks ago and they are slowly coming back. They were almost dead when I bought them. The people working there hadn't unwrapped them or watered them. This is the only pic I have of the bed, before the walking trail and mulch was added. I'm hoping I didnt plant them in too much shade. They should grow to make a nice hedge blocking the view from the road of our firepit area.

Limelights are super hardy and should make it through winter without a problem. My issue has always been getting them enough water the first year.

All hydrangea paniculata are hardy pretty much down to USDA zone 3.
