    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.

    Top three reasons to grow Let's Dance® Blue Jangles® hydrangea:

    • The only truly compact reblooming hydrangea.
    • blooms on old wood and new wood, so you get more flowers over a longer period
    • large flowers readily turn a deep blue in acidic soils
    Continuous Bloom or Rebloomer
    Salt Tolerant

    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.

    • I just unpacked and planted my gallon size Let’s Dance Blue Jangles. What a gorgeous plant. There are already buds and the leaves are a rich dark green. I couldn’t believe you could get such a beautiful plant by mail order. I will be getting more in the future! Thank you!
