Description
<p>When it's in bloom, you can see how WINE & ROSES® <em>Weigela<em> got its name. The flowers, beginning in April and continuing into June, are a rosy deep pink. And the foliage is a dramatic burgundy. At about 5 feet tall and wide, it's also considerably more compact than its parent, <em>Weigela</em> florida, making it a better fit for smaller gardens. </p>

<p>Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love <em>Weigela</em>, ad 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>
