The Let's Dance Cancan hydrangea is a new reblooming hydrangea from Proven Winners. This hydrangea will also grow flowers the first year it grows! The plant is known for continually producing new flowers all the way until August, which is much later in the year than most other hydrangeas. Mountain hydrangeas like this one are also very hardy plants and easy to care for. The lacecap flowers will bloom a wide range of colors, from strawberry pink, to lavender, to baby blue depending on the soil's pH.
These bigleaf hydrangeas can be grown in perennial gardens, as a low hedge or garden border, or in a mass planting. These hydrangeas also grow great in garden planters to add some color to a patio, entryway, balcony or a deck. This is a breakthrough plant in Hydrangea mac breeding, Let's Dance CanCan® produces flowers continuously, even during the first year growing. Seriously just - Pot it - Prune it - Bloom it™.
Let's Dance Cancan Hydrangea Care
This plant grows up to be 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide. It can tolerate partial sun to full sun, or anywhere between 4 and 8 hours of direct sunlight. If planted in full sunlight, be sure to provide extra water during hot summer days or periods of drought. The hotter climate you live in, the more shade this plant can tolerate. The plant needs moist but well drained soil. We also recommend adding a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to help retain moisture. You can fertilize in early spring with a slow release granular fertilizer. Make sure the ground is thawed completely before applying. You may also feed the plant a second time in late spring. Do not fertilize after late July, because it will negatively impact the plant going dormant for the winter.
Pruning Let's Dance Cancan Hydrangea cannot be pruned without impacting how many flowers the plant produces. It blooms on both new and old wood. We do not recommend pruning if possible. However, you can trim sick or dead branches and leaves at any time of the year.
Let's Dance Cancan Hydrangea Spacing
Plant these hydrangeas at least 36 inches apart, center on center. If growing in a garden planter, choose one at least 2 feet wide and 4 feet tall.
