Additional Information

Let's Dance Moonlight Bigleaf Hydrangea is a mophead cultivar that reblooms throughout the late summer months (July-September). Slightly more compact than the straight species, Let's Dance Moonlight cultivar typically grows 2 to 3' in height and in width. Like most of hydrangeas, flower color depends on the acidity of the soil (blue for more acidic and pink for more basic soils). Best use of this shrub would be in mass plantings.
