Pruning is generally not needed, but may be trimmed immediately after flowering. Flowers will be blue in acidic soils with aluminum in them; pink flowers in basic soils.
An endless drive for improvement is what motivates our big-leaf hydrangea breeding, so for us to make a new introduction, a plant has to be significantly better than what’s already available. That’s why Let’s Dance Big Band hydrangea has been added to the line: it combines bodacious, big mophead flowers with pure, true colors (pink in neutral/basic conditions, blue in acidic conditions) on a plant that survives winter better and reblooms better. That means more flowers, from the beginning of hydrangea season until the snowflakes fly!
