Description
<p>This <em>Weigela</em> can reach up to 9 feet tall and wide, so when it comes into bloom in May, it puts on a big show.  Magenta flowers run up and down every branch,
and bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds come flying. </p>
<p>They 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>
