Let's Dance Rave hydrangea  blooms on old wood in early summer, then as it continues to grow, it keeps making new flower buds for more blooms in the following weeks. The big, bold blooms may be a deep saturated pink in neutral to basic/alkaline soil and an intriguing violet in acidic conditions. Glossy, dark green foliage resists disease for a picture-worthy performance, year after year.

Maintenance Notes: 

Soil and exposure: Big-leaf hydrangeas should be planted in moist but well-drained soil - they cannot tolerate wet conditions. It's a good idea to have a 2-3" layer of mulch in all climates. Plant with at least some sun each day; the hotter your climate, the more shade the plant can withstand.

Pruning: big-leaf hydrangeas cannot be pruned at any point in the year without negatively impacting the flowering. As such, it's best to avoid pruning this type of hydrangea altogether. If portions of the plant were damaged from winter weather, they can be removed in spring when it is clear where the new growth is emerging.

Fertilizing: The key to getting reblooming hydrangeas to produce new-wood flower buds is to keep them growing vigorously all summer. Hence, fertilizer can be beneficial. Apply a granular rose fertilizer in early spring, when the ground has thawed, and again in late spring. Never fertilize after late July; that can interfere with the plant going dormant.

Color: The "default" color for big-leaf hydrangeas tends to the pink/red tones, and that is the color they will display in neutral (pH 7.0) or higher soil. The soil must be acidic (at least 6.5 or so) for the blue color to develop, and aluminum, a naturally occurring soil mineral, must be present. If you are not satisfied with the flower color in your yard, get a soil test so that you know exactly what must be changed. We do not recommend applying any kind of treatment "just in case" - that's a waste of time and money, and could potentially lead to pollution or create inhospitable conditions in the soil.

We ship two ways. One is "Local Delivery". That means one, or more, of our crew members personally delivers your order in a Bay Gardens truck or van to your home. This option is only available in certain zip codes throughout NY, NJ & CT.

The other method is "Common Carrier Shipping". Only certain plants can be sent this way. Usually ones that are under 4 feet tall. When we ship this way, one of our crew members boxes up your order and then sends it to your home via UPS or FedEx.

For more information on our shipping methods, browse our delivery pages in the "ABOUT" tab above.

Plants with listed heights (i.e. 4-5 ft) are measured from the top of the root ball to the top of the plant. Basically, what will be exposed out of the ground after planting. We do not count the root ball or container in the tree size.

Many of our plants come in the plastic Nursery Containers in which they are grown. These containers come in various sizes. Typically, the larger the container, the more mature and larger the plant is. The containers are measured by the "Gallon". More often than not, the larger the gallon size, the larger the plant.
