“Lush red-tinted leaves create a pretty backdrop to the many tubular dark pink blossoms that cover this flowering shrub. Asian in origin, Weigela is a tough and easy to grow deciduous shrub. Its blooms are colorful, attract pollinators in droves.
This large deciduous shrub has arching branches and develops a fountain-like habit when left undisturbed. It has elliptical, red-tinted leaves that offer little to no fall color. A profusion of beautiful and tubular rich pink flowers appear in late spring to early summer. These are red in bud.
For best flowering and growth, provide this shrub with full to partial sun and average to fertile soil with good drainage. It looks super in mixed borders or in informal hedges. Prune it in the summer after it blooms, but be sure not to shear it as this destroys the elegant fountain-like habit of mature plants.”
