Description
<p>It's the buds that are red. When they open, Java Red's flowers are decidedly pink. New foliage has a strong burgundy tint, maturing to dark green with a burgundy overcast by midsummer. At maturity, arcing canes that often touch the ground give it it a fountain-like form. </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>
