Description
<p>From April into June, 'Red Prince' gives you a mound of red flowers, set off against a dense backdrop of green leaves. Of course it makes a great specimen in a home garden, but that dense foliage means it's also particularly well suited to use as a hedge or screen.</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>
