Description

Very Floriferous | Holds Its Buds, Even in Bad Weather

A Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Flowering Shrubs variety, Let's Dance Sky View® is a woody deciduous shrub offering year-round interest. This bigleaf hydrangea is a hybrid cross of H. macrophylla x serrata that is very floriferous and creates a season-long floral display, consistently blooming and reblooming on old wood, summer through fall, holding its buds even in bad weather. The florets are pink or blue depending on soil pH, but they easily turn blue, which is recommended because the emerging soft blue florets with a honeydew green eye are especially attractive as they mature to full sky blue. Borne on long, strong stems, the large mophead clusters are long lasting and make excellent cuts for fresh and dried arrangements.

After the first frost, the flower clusters turn tan to caramel, and along with the shredding and peeling papery brown bark on mature plants that reveals glimpses of the underlying cinnamon hue of stems and branches, they add a textural element to the winter garden, especially pleasing in a snowy landscape. The hollow stems also provide nesting habitats for bees.

With cain-like growth, this densely branched, suckering shrub has a rounded, mounded habit. The shrub's compact size is perfect for a container, but it is also a great specimen, bed, and border plant.

Easy to grow and maintain, bigleaf hydrangea prefers some morning sun and afternoon shade; rich, well-draining soil; and plenty of water. A shade-loving shrub, it can tolerate more sun if the soil is kept consistently moist, but Let's Dance Sky View is bred to be especially heat tolerant.
