Proven Winners has created the perfect hydrangea for every shade garden with the Let's Dance hydrangea series. Whether you need an extremely dwarf hydrangea or a medium sized one, you can find it with these blue beauties. Let's Dance Rave is a good small-sized shrub for the shade garden, reaching two to three feet tall and wide--perfect for fitting under windows or in front of taller trees and shrubs.  Rave produces loads of flowers--blooming blue in acidic soil or pink in alkaline soil.  And it blooms on both old and new wood to keep the show going all season.

For a very long time hydrangeas have been one of my personal favorite plants. I love the leaf texture and the flowers of course. Most people dont know, but hydrangeas usually have amazing fall leaf color and texture either yellow or red before falling off for the winter. During the growing season they love to be watered, so don't hesitate to put on your flip flops on a hot day and give the hydrangea a drink. This fall, I will try to get some photos of their super cool leaves.

Shade hydrangeas prefer moist soil and regular watering during the growing season. For most, in order to obtain the blue flower color, apply 2 tablespoons of aluminum sulfate near the base of the plant. A rusty nail or coffee grounds will also increase the acidity of the soil which makes the flowers turn blue.
