    Maintenance Notes: 

    Prefers well-drained soils but fairly adaptable to other soil types.  If necessary, prune immediately after the spring bloom.  Best flowering occurs in full sun, but light shade isn't harmful, particularly in warmer climates.

    If desired, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.

    • I have 2 of these and they are thriving and gorgeous. They bloom all summer, and bring hummingbirds and pollinators to our yard. If I had room I would definitely plant more.

    • Love this. It did take about two years to get full bloom do not give up on it, it looks gorgeous. This grows out so make sure to leave enough space.

    • We love our Super Sonics! The bloom is a gorgeous bright hot pink up against the green leaves it's outstanding!!! We've had them a few years now and they are just rocking along. Highly recommend. We are zone 7B. A few of ours had some dead we had to cut back, but no big deal at all.

    • I never expect plants to match photos on packaging or advertising, but I figured if these looked half as good as the photos online I'd be happy. Planted six starter quarts of these last May (2018). The plants were ordered through a third party website (recommended) and were in good shape with a few blooms. Did well throughout last summer with consistent water/feed, and put on new blooms here and there into September. 4 out 6 put on really solid growth, with one getting subpar light and the other fighting back against damage that took out half the plant. I'm writing in June of year two and I am surprised and pleased to report that these plants flower ever bit as prolifically as the photos indicate. I would dare say the one that gets the best light looks even better than the plant on the tag. Having 6 in close proximity with different light conditions (ringed around a tree) it is clear that some are much bigger than others, but they are all blooming like crazy. Eager to see if they go this hard all summer or if they trail off.

    • Planted this late in the fall, had a brutal winter of ice and unusually cold temperatures. Both of my Sonic Blooms came through with NO dead branches, and have bloomed since late April/early May (it is now almost June). Absolutely covered with pink blossoms. I will definitely be adding more of these to my landscape.

    • The only reason I didn't choose the highest rating is because I can't say this is my absolute favorite out of all the plants I have, but it is definitely among my favorites. I do not have a single complaint about this Weigela! I purchased a one gallon size from a local nursery mid-summer last year (2013) and planted it in the corner of a raised L-shaped bed that surrounds our deck. It is definitely a statement piece and I thoroughly enjoy it! Even though I planted it late in the season last year, I was rewarded for my purchase with a slew of pretty, deep pink blooms! I was quite worried about the poor thing over the winter. I live in a suburb north of Indianapolis and we had a VERY harsh winter this year. I was worried that maybe it wouldn't make it through the winter since it was so newly planted, but it was one of the first plants to sprout leaves this spring and it already (it is early May) has flower buds ALL OVER IT that should begin opening this weekend or early next week. I am very excited to see the beautiful blooms popping up all through the summer. I like this Weigela so much that I plan to incorporate at least one, if not two, into the re-design of our front yard landscaping.

    • I am very excited to see there is a new Weigela which blooms so long! I am always sad when the blooming is over! An extremely hardy plant/shrub!
