Description

<p>For at least a month in late spring, Purple Leaf <em>Weigela</em> is loaded with clusters of rosy pink flowers, set off against its distinctive purple foliage. Then that dark foliage can help the colors of your summer garden stand out. It's also a tidy, compact bush, making it easy to fit in even in smaller gardens or even containers. For darker foliage and more bloom, give it as much sun as you  can. </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>
