Description

This award-winning Weigela is an old-fashioned tried-and-true bush that may well have been in your grandmother's garden. In spring and summer,clusters of pink buds open to pale blush flowers, shown off against variegated green and white foliage. Foliage is red, orange, and purple in the fall. The plant is most useful as a specimen or in a screen or hedge.

Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love Weigela, 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.
