Description
<p>With GHOST™, the foliage show goes on longer than the flower show. In spring,  leaves emerge chartreuse, and clusters of rosy red flowers cover the branches from April into early summer. Over summer the foliage matures to striking buttery yellow. Then in fall, in time for Halloween, those leaves turn a "ghostly" white. </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.No deadheading. 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>
