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.
