Features

No, you're not imagining it - Sonic Bloom Ghost weigela really is this beautiful! We've long loved this plant for its bright, bright pink/red flowers and uniquely colored foliage, which starts out lime green and develops an unusual, bright golden glow through the summer. And we've always known it was an outstanding rebloomer, flowering along with conventional weigela in late spring, then taking a rest and coming roaring back with fresh waves of bright blooms in fall - that's why we're finally adding it to the Sonic Bloom® series of reblooming weigela, where it belongs. Don't settle for an ordinary weigela - plant something extraordinary, like Sonic Bloom Ghost!

Top reasons to grow Sonic Bloom® Ghost® weigela:

- Months of flowers instead of just weeks

- foliage develops a totally unmatched glowing gold color through the season

- A uniquely modern version of an old-fashioned favorite.

Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for the recommended rate of application.

  • I have two of these, both in partial shade, one receives am sun and the other afternoon sun. They both look great. I love the blooms and so do the hummingbirds! Easy to care for, I just prune off some of the shoots after it blooms and water when it doesn't rain.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • It grew well last year after I planted it. There were good number of blooms. It did not come back this year. I am very disappointed.

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
