Description
<p>Like all <em>Weigela</em>, decora blooms in clusters of  trumpet-shaped flowers running the length of its branches. And they all open pale yellow. But they don't stay that color. They mature, one by one, to pink and red, so you may see all three colors on the same bush, or even in a single flower cluster. It makes for a lovely and unexpected spring show, lasting a month or more.</p>
<p>Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love <em>Weigela</em>, and so do gardeners. For a plant that gives you so much to look at, they're very easy to care for. No particular disease or pest problems. No special soil requirements. Just give them good drainage, reasonable moisture, and plenty of sun. Prune after spring bloom...fall pruning puts  next year's flowers at risk. </p>
