LimeLight Hydrangeas - Can they be kept thinner/shorter?
I just got some limelight hydrangeas to plant on the side of my house. They're not returnable, so I'm sort of stuck with them even if they don't work out :).
I planted them along the side of my house to hide an ugly concrete wall. I do have the room for them to get 6 feet wide, but if they get up to 9 feet tall - I'd have a problem since that is nearly my roof height :).
We have a vinyl fence w/gate that will be covered from street view if they grow to be 6 feet wide so I would like to keep them more in the 4 - 5 foot range.
Is pruning these something that can be done relatively simply to keep them a bit smaller or will I end up having to move these in a year because they've taken over the house? :)
