<p>'St. Klernet's' bloom starts with burgundy red buds all up and down every branch. Then from mid-spring into summer, the buds open to reveal bright pinkish-red flowers. And this bush is no fragile beauty. It's hardy to Zone 3, meaning it can handle winter temperatures down to -40.
<p>Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love <em>Weigela</em>, and so do gardeners. For
a plant that gives you so much to look at, they're very easy to care
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
puts next year's flowers at risk. </p>
