    Description:

    A flamboyant new spring-flowering shrub, featuring rosy-pink trumpet-shaped flowers held over deep wine-colored foliage, attracts hummingbirds; a relatively compact shrub, ideal for garden detail use; needs full sun

    Ornamental Features

    Wine and Roses® Weigela features showy clusters of hot pink trumpet-shaped flowers along the branches in late spring. It has attractive deep purple foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves are highly ornamental and turn an outstanding brick red in the fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

    Landscape Attributes

    Wine and Roses® Weigela is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.

    This shrub will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting hummingbirds to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Wine and Roses® Weigela is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Accent
    • Mass Planting
    • Hedges/Screening
    • General Garden Use

    Planting & Growing

    Wine and Roses® Weigela will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

    This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
