|I am interested in a Lime Light Hydrangea. I live in zone 7 and I am needing this for a wedding May 1, 2010. Can this plant be forced to bloom for that time of year.

|Limelight hydrangea normally blooms from mid-summer through fall. Climate is what prompts growth and flowering so unless you grow yours in a greenhouse where you can manipulate the light and heat, I don't think you can force it to bloom the first of May. I think your only option is to order the flowers from a florist. If you need to use the shrub as a background for a wedding, you can always wire the flowers to the stems of the shrub (who would know??) Hope this information helps.
