Maintenance Notes: 

This hydrangea blooms on both old and new wood. Pruning is generally not needed, but it may be trimmed lightly after the first flowering. Best in moist, well-drained soils. Supplemental moisture may be needed in very hot or dry conditions. Fertilize in spring with a controlled release fertilizer. Add aluminum sulfate to the soil to encourage blue flower color.

Richly colored reblooming hydrangea.

The Let's Dance Hydrangea series represents the next generation of reblooming hydrangeas. Don't settle for dull drab hydrangea flowers - this series kicks up the quality with vivid flower coloration and attractive, glossy foliage. The Let's Dance series bloom on both new wood and old, delivering seasons of flowers and lots of wow.

A real workhorse, Moonlight is a strong growing reblooming mophead hydrangea with exceptional flower color.  Flowers will range in color from pink to purple to blue depending on soil pH.

  • I planted nine of these in a "garden redo" in 2011. They were barely visible above the deck when planted and now provide a gorgeous pink border most all summer and with their change in color in the fall are still amazing right through October and sometimes in November. Last year was a very wet year for us and they LOVED it. Gave away many bouquets and they are gorgeous dried for Christmas arrangements. Very easy maintenance...the less you do, the better.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • I actually live in zone 4, and this plant has been wonderful for me! I gave it no winter protection, yet many branches survived the winter - but it also put up new shoots from the ground! It's in its second year and it has over a dozen blooms on it, it is completely covered. I came to this website to see if I could order another one - looks like they aren't for sale anymore, or at least not right now. Bring it back!

  • I purchased four Let's Dance Moonlight hydrangeas at a local nursery at the recommendation of the aide there for a hydrangea that will last in full sun. While all three plants are alive, they did not perform well. None of the three bloomed, they have very small, unattractive leaves, and barely increased in size. (As comparison, the Nikko blue hydrangeas I planted last year in a shady area with the same soil have doubled in size). I was told by a horticulturalist who visited my home that they can't take the hot Alabama sun. i'm going to give them one more year, but am very disappointed!

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.

  • Purchased it on a whim because it looked so healthy & attractive. It had one giant pink bloom on it at the time of purchase in 2009. This season it has returned with more than a dozen flowers on it. This one experience has made me a PW fan.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
