Blue Jangles C

Mophead hydrangeas got their name from the big "mop" of flowers. They prefer light  shade. They are the most popular "family" of hydrangea. They usually bloom in late May from the "old" wood. What makes the Let's Dance Series outstanding is that they rebloom throughout the Summer on the "new" wood. Because of this, you can be assured that they will flower even after a hard Winter. Do not trim them too low to the ground, or you will have fewer flowers next year. They also take the hot summer sun better than most other "mophead" hydrangeas. This is the "family" of hydrangeas that are used for Easter. It is the only "family" that the color can be changed from Pink to Blue by the soil acidity


There are several different "families" of Hydrangea with very different characteristics. We have the 4 commonly cultivated "families" listed below:

Bobo dwarf Little Lime C

Panicle Hydrangea like the full, hot sun. They are extremely hardy & very easy to grow. The old varieties grew to about 8' tall, but we have some new dwarf varieties. Panicle hydrangeas start out with pure white flowers in June to July. The flowers then age to a pink in late summer & finish with bronze, red in the fall. They make excellent dried flowers.

Hydrangea (Snow Ball)

Also called "Annabelle type" these hydrangea like lots of sunlight. This is one of the oldest cultivaed types of hydrangea, but there are some exciting new varieties. They are very hardy and can be trimmed back to the ground.

Wee White

Grows 2' Tall & Wide

With its miniature size, Wee White  does not flop like most snowball hydrangeas. Pure white flowers finish with a pink blush.


Mini Mauvette

Grows 2' Tall & Wide

Two breakthroughs in one plant: The first is a Pink Snowball hydrangea! The second is a miniature that will not flop. It also reblooms very well!



Hydrangea (Oakleaf)

When you see the deeply disected leaves of this "family" of hydrangeas, you will know how it got its name. Oakleaf Hydrangeas prefer partial shade, but will adapt to full sun or full shade. Their flower is alot like the Panicle hydrangea. They are the only family of hydrangeas to get a nice red fall color. They are also the most deer proof of all hydrangeas.

Cytisus-Lena Cytisus All Gold

Scotch Broom

Wow! That's the typical response when a scotch broom is blooming. In May, they're all color. Following their flowers, their stems grow long and look much like an ornamental grass. They grow 4' tall. We recommend a light trim after they bloom.

Helmond's Pillar

Helmond's Pillar Barberry

Grows 4.5' Tall & 1.5' Wide



Knockout Roses have totally changed the way we look at roses. No more spraying! They are black spot resistant. On top of that, they bloom all-summer. They are also easier to trim. Just trim them to 18" each Spring with a hedge trimmers. They only grow to 4' Tall & Wide. If you have worn out on roses, try these!

Here is another category of plant that Proven Winners has revived. Spireas are a very hardy plant, but the only bloom for about 6 weeks. Double Play is a new series from Proven Winners that has the hardiness & flowers of the old varieties, but they also have beautiful foliage color. In fact, their foliage is so vibrant that some people plant them more for their foliage than their flower!
