Maintenance Notes: 

Prefers well-drained soils but is extremely adaptable to other soil types. Pruning is best done immediately after flowering; little pruning is needed. Medium moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees & shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application. This is a slow growing plant and may need a year in the landscape before it grows noticeably.

This new dwarf weigela has very attractive gold foliage and nice red fall color. Grown primarily for its colorful foliage, it will occasionally produce soft, rosy pink flowers. Add it to the front of beds and borders fo multi-season color.
