Description
<p>For a mid-size shrub, this <em>Weigela</em> has an outsize impact. New foliage is a bright golden color. The late spring bloom is pink, flushed with purple. And even at maturity in mid-summer, the foliage remains a fresh, eye-catching lime green.
<p>Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love <em>Weigelas.</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. 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>
