Description
This deep pink <em>Weigela</em> blooms later than many, starting in June and continuing into July, with some repeat flowering later in the season. Between  'Olympiade's' height (up to 8 feet) and <em>Weigela's</em> tolerance for heaving pruning, it's particularly well-suited for use as a hedge. </p>
<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>
