Our most prolific and reliable blooming mophead hydrangea to date. Let's Dance Arriba hydrangea is a hybrid between H. macrophylla x H. serrata hybrid with large, dense mophead flowers. It is so prolific you can finish and sell and flowering plant in the same year you pot up trimmed liners. The rich flower color ranges from hot pink to purple to blue depending upon your soil pH, phosphorus and aluminum levels. The blooms age to an attractive mauve pink. Recommended as a replacement for Let's Dance Big Easy, Rave, Rhythmic Blue, and other first-generation reblooming hydrangeas.

Growing & Maintenance Tips for Hydrangea x 'Let's Dance ¡Arriba!™'

Bigleaf hydrangeas benefit from a good layer of shredded bark mulch and afternoon shade, particularly in hotter climates. Apply a granular fertilizer formulated for flowering shrubs (like a rose fertilizer) if leaves start to yellow.

Moist but well drained soils are best. Bigleaf hydrangeas may wilt in dry soils but also cannot take soggy conditions for any period of time. Tolerant of a range of soil pH levels, however, soil pH will influence flower color.
 
 Bigleaf hydrangeas are classic choices for flower gardens, cottage gardens, and seaside plantings. They also make a showy addition to foundation plantings and can be used for low hedges or edging.
 
Avoid pruning bigleaf hydrangeas, except to remove any dead wood. These hydrangeas cannot be cut back or trimmed at any time of the year without impacting the bloom for either the current season or the next.
