Nothing special required. If desired, you may apply a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants in late winter/early spring when the soil is workable.
Rejuvenation pruning every 3 to 5 years is recommended – this is the process of removing 1/3 of the thickest branches all the way to the ground. Has an irregular habit that looks best when left unpruned.
Makes a great cut flower or foliage filler for arrangements.
An update on our classic Wine & Roses weigela, this vigorous, handsome variety combines even more dramatic dark foliage with crisp white-green flowers. A real showstopper in the garden center and landscape.
Dark and light unite perfectly in Wine & Spirits® weigela. The creamy white flowers are perfectly set against the matte, dark purple foliage. Easily a new favorite. It’s a vigorous grower, quickly filling in the middle of the border or a mid-height hedge. It’s easy to pair with other elegant, purple foliage flowering shrubs and perennials.
