Pretty as those pink flowers are in spring, the foliage is the main attraction with 'Sunset.', and it puts on an ever-changing show. In spring, the chartreuse leaves have a broad, irregular cream border. Then, depending on age and weather, that border will turn gold, and by fall it's washed with red-orange. At just 18 inches tall, 'Sunset' is an ideal candidate for the front of the border, where the color show is on full display.
Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love Weigela, and so do gardeners. For a bush 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.
