Caring for Let's Dance® Rhythmic Blue® Hydrangea

When planting your Let's Dance Rhythmic Blue hydrangea be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new plants to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant hydrangeas. But if you avoid temperature extremes you can safely and successfully plant hydrangeas throughout the year.

The Let's Dance Rhythmic Blue hydrangea grows in full sun to part shade and prefers moist, well-drained, fertile soil. In hot climates, hydrangeas will generally perform best with some shade. This variety's color is affected by soil pH. To maintain the coveted deepest blue color keep your soil pH between 5 and 5.5. Add aluminum sulfate to acidify your soil and lower the pH. Keep the soil moist, but not saturated, especially in summer and in the first year after planting. Throughout its life a hydrangea will do best with a deep watering once weekly during summer. Mulching at about 2 inches deep is highly recommended for hydrangeas. Mulching will cut back on watering needs and protect your plant in extreme temperatures. Fertilize with our balanced slow release fertilizer when planting and in spring. You do not need to prune your Rhythmic Blue hydrangea.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success.

Landscape ideas
The Let's Dance Rhythmic Blue hydrangea adds vibrant color to your landscape. Hydrangeas are excellent for borders, hedges, and mass plantings. This stunning shrub jazzes up gardens and mixed beds. At 3 to 4 feet tall and wide at maturity this amazing hydrangea can even be used in foundation plantings. Try this flowering shrub in a container to add a bold pop of color to your entryway, porch, patio, or deck. For borders or low hedges plant about 3 feet apart on center. Otherwise, plant about 4.5 to 5 feet apart to give your plants space in between.
