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!
- Part Sun to Sun
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
This plant is hardy in zones 5 - 9
Zones are based on the lowest average temperature an area is expected to receive during the winter. They are used to determine whether a plant is likely to be perennial in your area. If your zone is equal to or higher than the zone listed for the plant, it will be hardy for you and thrive in your climate.

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. Large, full flower heads will readily go heavenly blue in acid soils; in alkaline soils, they'll be vivid pink. This proven performer will bloom reliably even in zone 5.
Top three reasons to grow Let's Dance® Blue Jangles® hydrangea:
Continuous Bloom or RebloomerSalt Tolerant
- The only truly compact reblooming hydrangea.
- blooms on old wood and new wood, so you get more flowers over a longer period

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.Let's Dance® Blue Jangles® Hydrangea macrophylla 'SMHMTAU' USPP 27,035, Can 5,283
