Uses Notes: 

Shrub borders, grouping, masses, specimen plants, and containers (plant in ground in fall.) This makes an excellent mass planting, and can also be used as a cut flower.

Maintenance Notes: 

Prefers well-drained soils but fairly adaptable to other soil types. It is best to prune immediately after flowering. Will flower sporadically on current season's growth. Medium moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for the recommended rate of application.

Isn't it romantic! Rosy-pink flowers add a touch of romance when displayed against the dark glossy foliage. The foliage is much darker than that of older varieties like 'Java Red'. It contrasts beautifully with the rosy-pink flowers, making for a high impact display in the garden. This variety produces copious amounts of flowers in spring, and will re-bloom throughout the summer. The trumpet-like flowers are adored by hummingbirds! Try using Wine & Roses weigela's colorful branches in flower arrangements. It can also be enjoyed as an accent plant or used for a dramatic mass planting. It is fast growing and trouble free, making it an easy way to add season long color to the garden.

  • This was planted by the contractor prior to my purchase. They planted the three bushes too close together so I'll have to thin them but the foliage is lovely and they are very low maintenance.

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

  • I just can't get over the fabulous color that this plant has, mine blooms off and on through out the year. I get such a joy when I walk by, see new blooms I have to stop and stare for awhile. I am quite taken by this shrub!

  • I have a number of Proven Winners in my garden -- and all others have done extremely well. However, this weigela is such a disappointment. I purchased two and, unfortunately, they are the going to be moved this year to the back of my yard (where we move plants that do not do well). These were, for us, a waste of money and not the least bit attractive at any time of year.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
