Weigela is a deciduous shrub and a very attractive plant when in full bloom. Flowers will adorn the ends of the long stems and will range from white, soft pink, to dark vivid magenta. The flower show is long-lasting and the plant usually blooms from May to June, and will also rebloom during the summer. It has very attractive textured foliage making it a beautiful plant to be used as a focal point in the landscape. This plant can be used as an accent, border, hedge, and for massing. If attracting hummingbirds is a desire, plant a Weigela, they are drawn to the tubular flowers.

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds germinate very slowly indeed in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.

Weigela , you can an amazing flurry of bright pink-red blooms on a neat, compact silhouette. And even better is the fact that it reblooms, delivering rich color from May until the first frost.

But despite its unmatched elegance, the Weigela takes care of itself. When it comes to your Weigela Shrub, you won't have to deadhead spent blooms or spend hours toiling in your garden. You get brilliant waves of vibrant pink flowers starting in May, with color that keeps coming until the first frost of the year!

Bigger blooms, bolder color, and blankets of full petals give you the best yard on the block. It's the strongest reblooming weigela variety ever developed, so you get hundreds of flowers. It's no wonder why you see these in high-end neighborhoods as a colorful flowering hedge. But they look great anywhere...in garden beds, in foundation plantings, and even in containers next to your entryway.

Planting & Care 1. Planting: Start by choosing an area with full sun to partial sun (at least 4 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil – the Weigela is adaptable to nearly any type, as long as there’s no standing water, and it will adapt to some shade. When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole large enough to accommodate your plant’s roots, place your tree and backfill the soil, and then water to settle the roots.

2. Watering: Water your Weigela regularly during the first growing season, or about once per week. You may need to water more often during times of extreme heat. But if you’re not sure when to water your Weigela, however, simply check the soil about 2 to 3 inches down – if the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.

3. Pruning: Pruning is not necessary for your Weigela – simply space your plantings to allow your Weigela to grow naturally. If you want a more formal appearance, prune annually after the second flowering period at the end of summer.

4. Fertilizer: Fertilize your Sonic Bloom® with a slow-release solution before new growth begins in the spring.
