Super-sized mophead blooms!

Bigleaf hydrangeas (Hydrangea macrophylla) often leave gardeners feeling out of step with unreliable blooms and weak coloring. Don’t settle for the same old song. Let’s Dance! Let’s Dance® Big Easy reblooming hydrangea bursts on to the floor with oversized mophead blooms that emerge green, then turn pink, and often turning green again.  Soil pH will affect bloom color, with purple or blue tones in more acidic soil.  Its compact habit reaches a tidy 2-3’, so pruning isn’t a problem.  Each plant is a real workhorse: the Let’s Dance series sets buds on old wood like traditional bigleaf hydrangeas and again on new wood, giving a second flush of blooms. Let’s Dance Big Easy is hardy to Zone 5 and prefers full sun or part shade.
