LET'S DANCE® Series

An introduction to using LET'S DANCE® hyrangeas in your landscape or garden

While some are content to sell hydrangeas that disappoint consumers, we‘re on a quest for improvement. It helps that we‘re breeding in Michigan‘s harsh climate, as opposed to Germany or Georgia or some mild microclimate, so we can let normally unfavorable weather work in our favor in terms of selection. We know if a hydrangea grows and blooms here, they’ll demonstrate reliable garden perfomance pretty much everywhere else. As we develop better, more resilient selections, we phase out the old ones that are no longer up to snuff. We have a saying around here that the best plant wins, so out with the old, send them off to the bin. While you won’t find the Let’s Dance series in cheap discount stores, you‘ll find them in gardens performing, still blooming, from now evermore.

    LET’S DANCE CAN DO!® Reblooming Bigleaf Hydrangea

    Let’s Dance Can Do! hydrangea is an excellent rebloomer, requiring only a short period of vegetative growth in order to create new wood blooms. However, it has another trick up its sleeve: it sets its flower buds along the entire length of the stem, not merely at the tips. This means that if this hydrangea is cut back, or damaged by cold temperatures, those lower old wood buds will still develop into flowers. It’s a huge leap forward in achieving success with hydrangeas for landscapers, home gardeners, growers, and retailers alike. Abundant, semi-double, star-like florets make the lacecap flowers very showy.

    LET’S DANCE BIG BAND® Reblooming Bigleaf Hydrangea

    An endless drive for improvement is what motivates our big-leaf hydrangea breeding, so for us to make a new introduction, a plant has to be significantly better than what’s already available. That’s why Let’s Dance Big Band hydrangea has been added to the line: it combines bodacious, big mophead flowers with pure, true colors (pink in neutral/basic conditions, blue in acidic conditions) on a plant that survives winter better and reblooms better. That means more flowers, from the beginning of hydrangea season until the snowflakes fly!

Keys to Success

As much as we dedicate ourselves to overcoming bigleaf hydrangeas’ inherent liabilities, choosing the right spot and caring for them properly play a substantial role in your success. Here are our recommendations for growing Let’s Dance® hydrangeas like an expert.

All this said, Hydrangea macrophylla is not for everyone or every garden. Some people, particularly in very cold climates, those in USDA zones 4 and 5 without reliable snow cover, and those with frequent spring frosts, will still be better off with the unwavering hardiness and rock-solid reliability of Hydrangea paniculata and Hydrangea arborescens. You’ll find equally innovative varieties of both of those species from Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Shrubs as well.
