(Big Leaf Hydrangea) Hydrangea Let’s Dance® Big Easy really steps up the wow factor with huge colorful mop heads and attractive foliage. A big leaf reblooming hydrangea, Let’s Dance® Big Easy blooms on both new wood and old and usually does not require pruning. The huge mop heads progress from pink/green to pink and then back to green. Soil PH affects the pink to blue flower color. Horticultural lime will encourage pink blooms and adding aluminum sulfate produces a blue flower color.

The Let's Dance™ Hydrangea series represents the next generation of re-blooming Hydrangeas. Don't settle for dull drab Hydrangea flowers - this series kicks up the quality with vivid flower coloration and attractive, glossy foliage. Every year the Let's Dance™ series blooms on both new wood and old, delivering seasons of flowers and lots of wow. They'll make you want to dance! As a young plant it is best to prune or pinch Let's Dance™ Big Easy in order to build a full-bodied, well-branched plant. If the plant is leggy when you purchased it, shear the plant back hard by 1/3 to 1/2 its original size. Once it puts on an inch or two of growth, pinch the branch tips to remove just the growing tips, these tips control branching. Once growing tips are removed the buds below it will turn into stems. Once these new branches grow an inch or two, pinch the tips out again. You can repeat this throughout the first growing season as you are tending your garden. Although you will sacrifice blooms, this technique results in a well-branched, full-bodied plant that will have more flowers in subsequent years. During the second and subsequence seasons, prune or pinch as necessary after flowering and before buds set in mid-August. Do not be afraid to prune or shear your plant harder if you wish to maintain a shorter size.
