Will tolerate light frosts. In frost prone areas, plant it in a position that offers some protection such as beside buildings, fences or other trees and shrubs. In humid climates, provide extra airflow by planting it in raised garden beds or containers.


'Limelight' is best watered at the base and not overhead due to its dense habit. Container and garden plants can be pruned when required in the warmer months by removing a third to half of the foliage. Pruned plants look superb with their fresh light green pendulous foliage.


'Limelight' is tolerant of most well drained soils including lime and prefers an open, full sun or part shaded position.
