Maintenance Notes: 

Prefers well-drained soils but fairly adaptable to other soil types.  If necessary, prune immediately after the spring bloom.  Fertilize in early spring with a controlled-release fertilizer.

This is a humdinger of a weigela!  Sonic Bloom weigelas have the strongest rebloom of any weigela, flowering in May and then producing waves of reblooms until frost.  The lipstick red flowers of Sonic Bloom Red add season-long drama to gardens.  Deadheading is not needed to keep the plant blooming. 

The lipstick red flowers are remarkable enough to make this a choice selection, but a burst of flowers in May followed by waves of rebloom until frost make it a must-have shrub.  Deadheading is not needed to keep the plant blooming.
