How To Grow Soil: Bigleaf hydrangeas require well-drained but moist soil. A good layer of mulch is very helpful for minimizing drought stress and conserving moisture.
Light: Plants can take full sun (6+ hrs/day) in cooler areas, but afternoon shade is recommended in warm climates. If your plant frequently wilts in the afternoon even though it was recently watered, that may indicate the spot is too sunny for it.
Water: Average to abundant (as long as soil is well drained).
Space: Min. 3' apart
Fertilizing: Fertilize in early spring, once the ground has thawed, with a granular rose fertilizer. Make an additional application in late spring/early summer to boost reblooming ability, particularly in colder areas.
Winterizing: Do not cut plants back for winter! Doing so will cut off all of the flower buds for the following season. If plants show a lot of dieback in spring, consider moving them, as this indicates the spot may be too cold for the plant.
Maintenance: Even though Let's Dance hydrangeas are reblooming and capable of flowering on old and new wood, for best bloom, it is best to avoid pruning, trimming, or cutting them back. Any dead wood can be pruned out in early spring, once the new growth has begun to emerge, and it's clear where any winter damage occurred. If plants do not flower reliably, move them to a more protected spot in your yard; early spring is an excellent time to do that. For best reblooming performance, keep plants free of stress so they grow vigorously. New growth is key to a good rebloom!
Notes on flower color:  The flowers of bigleaf hydrangeas can vary from pink to purple to blue, depending on soil chemistry. You must have both an acidic soil and the presence of aluminum (a naturally occurring soil element) for blue/purple color to develop. Get a soil test from your local Cooperative Extension before applying any color change treatment to be certain that it will be effective.

Hydrangea 1, Lavender 0

The hydrangea seems to be doing fine, but all four lavender plants died. Some things are probably better bought local...

My plant’s came packed very good, they were good looking plants. I had ordered several different kinds of Hydrangea’s. These 2 died about after a week or so. I would like to try them again, I hope they make it right.

Love This plant and Great Garden Plants Overall

I bought 6 of these as 1 quart size on March 26, 2021. They arrived around 4/6. I unpacked them right away but couldn’t plant them for about 2 weeks. I did water them them in a nice spot until I could get to them. I planted them with compost and fertilizer. I also set up a sprinkler with a timer to water them every morning at 5am. They were super tiny little things, but after 6 months they are all thriving and have grown about 4-5xs their size. It’s amazing to see how well they have performed and I can’t wait to see them come back in the spring. I also just bought 5 more to plant before the first frost - making a hydrangea headgear now and I can’t wait to see it grow. Very very happy with my purchase!!!

Very sensitive to heat and burns easily even in morning sun

I have been shocked at how fragile these plants are. During heat waves I have had to water them twice a day and they still fried.

Hello Jan! Most varieties tolerate full sun in the North, but benefit from afternoon shade. We recommend that if growing in full sun only if grown with consistent moisture. These plants are intolerant of drought, with foliage tending to decline considerably in dry conditions.

Teeny tiny plants

Thought the prices were great until the plants arrived. Everything was exceptionally small. My hydrangeas are struggling in this hot dry weather, despite being watered regularly. Not sure they’re going to make it through the summer. Too fragile because they’re too immature.
