Plant of the Week: LET’S DANCE CAN DO!® Reblooming hydrangea

Welcome to 2023!

We’re done with 2022, and if you’re a little apprehensive about what 2023 will bring, don’t worry. You can do it! Here’s a plant to help you: Let’s Dance Can Do!® hydrangea hybrid.

It’s full of “can-do” spirit. Do you like lots of flowers? It can do that, no problem. This is a rebloomer that will flower from early summer until frost. Are you into fall color? It can do that, too. This is a staff favorite that has demonstrated its outstanding performance right in front of our office for several seasons.

The flowers

Let’s Dance Can Do!® hydrangea is a cross between Hydrangea macrophylla and H. serrata. That serrata “blood” gives it excellent bud hardiness. This is one of the strongest rebloomers that we’ve seen, and the flowers are pretty gorgeous, too.

Like other macrophylla and serrata flowers, their color will be affected by soil.

The foliage

We don’t typically think of hydrangeas as having great fall foliage color, but this one does. In fact, it often has rich purple fall foliage even as it’s still producing new flowers. How do you like fresh hydrangeas on Halloween?


It’s trade show time!

Are you headed out to MANTS this month? We are, and we hope to see you.

The Mid Atlantic Nursery Trade Show, AKA MANTS, is next week! Last year between national health concerns and a blizzard, Spring Meadow did not attend. Hopefully, this year we got the blizzard out of the way over the holidays, so we’ll be smooth sailing.
