Weigela are generally grown for their prolific and extended spring bloom. With 'Wings of Fire', even though the lavender-pink spring bloom is lovely, the flowers are just a prelude to the foliage. Once flowering is over, the leaves begin to turn bronze, and over the summer deep reddish tints emerge. Come fall, you get the fiery red and gold that earned this bush its name.

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.
