The reblooming hydrangea that really does!

Let's Dance® Blue Jangles® is a big-leaf hydrangea that blooms on both old and new wood, with a tight, compact habit that is unusual among reblooming hydrangeas.

Maintenance Notes:
Let's Dance® hydrangeas are best left unpruned - though they bloom on both old and new wood, you'll enjoy many more blooms over a longer period if you don't prune them except to remove any dead wood in spring, once the new growth has emerged.

Big-leaf hydrangeas benefit from a good layer of shredded bark mulch to keep their shallow roots from drying out. In colder climates, they should get at least six hours of sun, ideally in the morning; warm climate gardeners should ensure plants are shaded during the hottest parts of the day.

Fun Facts:
The Let's Dance® series of reblooming hydrangeas were developed in Michigan. They went through a gauntlet of brutal treatment to ensure that they would still create new wood flower buds during the growing season, when it counts.
