Is this for you?
Thornless and aromatic, the Key Lime is a favorite among gardeners and chefs alike! The dainty, lime-green fruits are delightful with grilled fish, cocktails, and desserts, such as the famous Key Lime pie. Star-shaped white flowers emerge amongst its aromatic green leaves, creating a serene and tropical feel in the landscape. Pollinators such as hummingbirds and butterflies visit the blossoms regularly for a sweet sip of nectar.

Makes an excellent container plant! Flowering occurs throughout the year and is heaviest in spring and late summer. Key Limes grow well in small garden areas and make excellent accent trees.

Low maintenance once established with little watering required! A warm weather lover, the Key Lime thrives in full sun and is extremely heat tolerant. Best grown in areas with long summers and frost-free winters, this tender citrus tree should be moved indoors for protection in areas with cold winters.
