The Let's Dance® Rave® Bigleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla 'SMNHMSIGMA') is one of the best rebloomers we've ever introduced! Blooming on old wood in early summer, then as it continues to grow, it keeps making new flower buds for more blooms in the following weeks.

Mophead Hydrangeas have big, bold blooms as it is, and Rave® takes it one step further with a deep saturated pink in neutral to basic/alkaline soils and an intriguing violet in acidic conditions! Backed by a dense mound of glossy, dark green foliage for a picture-worthy performance, year after year.

Rave® Bigleaf Hydrangea thrives in a wide range of climates and conditions in growing zones 5-9 and keeps to a tidy ball only 2-3 feet in height and width. These are new and improved with more disease resistance! So you'll enjoy deep green foliage all growing season without any fuss!

Planting and Application:

Let's Dance® Rave® look absolutely charming in a large pot or planter! Create elevated plantings by combining potted urns with these vivid blooms among an established mixed-shrub border and Perennial gardens! The color makes them welcome with all other flowers and especially wonderful in cutting gardens where your arrangements and bouquets will benefit from the large colorful flowers!

Bigleaf Hydrangea works great as low informal hedges, low screening, and edging, so line your driveway and along your home's front yard to separate the front yard from the sidewalk, and vividly define the transition between lawn and garden bed! Pop a row of these accents in front of your home's foundation for incredible curb appeal!

  • Big Mophead Clusters Pink/Purple/Violet
  • Broad Dense Foliage
  • Change Color with pH
  • Small & Compact
  • Low Hedge, Edging, Facer & Specimen

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Let's Dance® Hydrangeas prefer full sun and partial shade in hotter climates. Plant in evenly moist but well-drained soils and they love mulched beds. Prune out old flower heads in early spring as they fade, or clean up the mound after flowering. Acid soil keeps the blooms blue while alkaline soil turns them pink!

  • Full Sun & Afternoon Shade in Hot Growing Zones
  • Moist Enriched Soil & Thick Mulch Layer
  • Prune After Flowering
  • Disease Resistant

Let's Dance® Rave® Bigleaf Hydrangea shows that big things come in small packages! Get big blooms and fantastic color without sacrificing space! Have it all with new and innovative plant varieties delivered to you from NatureHills.com!
