Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

DescriptionThe brightest and best rebloomer yet! Let’s Dance® Rave hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla) puts all of its energy into growing flowers, so you get more of what you love about bigleaf hydrangeas. Its large mophead blooms are characterized by deep, saturated colors - bright, vivid pink, or shocking violet. Compact size is useful in the garden and indicates that the plant devotes its energies to developing flower buds instead of leafy growth.
About the Let’s Dance® series: Developed in Michigan by Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs specifically for better reblooming performance. These plants bloom on last year’s wood, like conventional bigleaf hydrangeas, but are also capable of producing more blooms on the growth they create this year. That means that you’ll still enjoy flowers later in the season, even if your hydrangea is improperly pruned and even if it was damaged by winter cold. Essentially, it means more flowers, and that’s what it’s all about!DetailsBotanical name: Hydrangea macrophylla 'SMNMSIGMA' Patent #: USPP 26,929 Common name: Reblooming hydrangea, Bigleaf hydrangea, Mophead hydrangea, Florist's hydrangea, Hortensia Zone: 5-9 Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun) in cool areas; part-sun (4-6 hours sun) in warm climates. Height x width: 2-3' tall and wide Flower color: Bright pink or vivid violet, depending on conditions (see how to grow for more info) Foliage color: Glossy green Season of Interest: Summer-fall Uses: Flower gardens, Landscaping, Specimen, Flowering hedge. How To GrowSoil: Average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Mulch to conserve moisture and buffer soil temperatures. Light: Most varieties tolerate full sun in the North, but benefit from afternoon shade. Tolerates full sun only if grown with consistent moisture. In the South, plants require afternoon shade. Intolerant of drought, with foliage tending to decline considerably in dry conditions. Water: Water to keep soil moist, but not wet. Spacing: 2-3 feet Fertilizing: Fertilize once in spring with a granular rose fertilizer. Make a second application in early summer if desired. Winterizing: Do not prune. A 2-3" layer of shredded bark mulch is sufficient winter protection. Maintenance & Pruning: Avoid pruning except to remove any obviously dead wood in spring, when the new growth has emerged. Though this type of hydrangea blooms on old and new wood, it's best to avoid pruning it for the most flowers and best performance. Mature plants may be selectively thinned, removing one-third of the oldest branches each late winter. 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.
