<p>'Eyecatcher' may be small for a <Weigela</em> but it is indeed an eyecatcher...and not just when it's in bloom. After the prolific display of rosy red flowers has ended, the variegated foliage is in full display...mid-green with a bright golden chartreuse border. Planting in full sun will give you the most abundant flowering, while giving it some shade will promote stronger variation in the foliage. The choice is up to you.
<p>Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love <em>Weigela</em>, ad 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>
