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!

Large, vividly colored mophead flowers in summer. Blooms every year. Soil pH affects flower color. Good fall color.
Great landscape plant adds a dash of bright color to the garden. Good in groupings or masses, in a perennial or shrub borders, as a specimen, screen or hedge. Use in mixed containers, containers, and as a cut flower. Plant in the ground for the winter.
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.

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.LindaIllinoisUnited States5 years ago
