    • I planted 3 Let’s Dance Diva a couple years ago, they are amazing and come back beautiful with great blooms every year! Even after the worst snow! I planted them on the side of the house that has morning shade and afternoon sun, watered the first year religiously but less the following 2 years, they don’t droop like my other hydrangeas,do midday possibly since they aren’t in full sun? Just had my driveway done and they ripped them out by mistake, I’m so mad!!! So now I hope you sell them in Spring 2020!!!!! They are sold out in Fall 2019:(

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • I planted these Diva’s in Spring 2019 and they are one of the most wonderful shrubs in my Garden! You will never see a more beautiful or fuller lace-cap Hydrangea in your life! They are super performers and draw everyone into the garden to gaze at their extra large, beautiful blooms

    • This is an update on my review from 2 years ago. Even though we have had a very brutal winter that caused major die back on shrubs I have had with no problems for 20 years (cornus, viburnums, etc.), I have had no die back on this hydrangea since the first winter, 3 years ago. The flowers are still outstanding. About the height. For 3 years it was still just 18' high. This spring we had 5 weeks of 4-6 hour rainfall every other day, and 15 degree below average temperatures. The hydrangea loved it. It is 30" tall this year. So maybe a drip irrigation system on for hours each day to get the height? (I also have Starlight hydrangea and this is the first year it also reached the advertised height of two feet in 3 years.)

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • Flowers are outstanding-a real eye catcher. Leaves are healthy. This is the second summer in my zone 6 yard. The only drawback is that it is not even 18 inches high because there was die-back almost to the ground this spring, and not especially vigorous growth these past 3 months. I will have to move this to the front edge of the garden instead of the middle. When I bought it last year from the local nursery it was 2 feet high.

    • Diva is a beautiful elegant soft pink hydrangea with uniquely large flowering heads. Easy to grow and hardy. It brings a calm smile to my face every time it catches my gaze. I highly recommend this plant.

    • That is just such a stunning Hydrangea, a lace cap it looks like from one of the photos. I started collecting your Hydrangeas 2 years ago. I started out with all the City Line varieties and just kept adding. Now 2 years and 30 bushes later the first bloomers are in bud and are starting to open. All the Proven Winner plants are healthy and thriving. I would love to add this one to my collection.
