Planted three of these mid spring and have been truly amazed at their growth, vigor and outstanding reblooming. They are still going and my hummingbirds absolutely love them! Just can't beat Proven Winners Bloomerang red!
Sonic Bloom® Red Reblooming Weigela Weigela florida
- Hardy Zones
- 4 - 8
- Mature Size
- 48 - 60 Inches
Lipstick red flowers in spring. Repeat flowers until frost. Reblooms without deadheading. Attracts hummingbirds.
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.
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.
