An elaborate color display packed in a petite little shrub. Bubbly Wine® weigela starts in the springtime with vibrant new growth that transitions to flashy yellow and green variegation for the summertime. That’s when the light purple flowers sprinkle across the rounded top, creating a delicious little moment of contrast. Later on, you begin to notice the dark burgundy stems, providing even more interest. Thankfully the deer don’t seem to notice the foliage or flowers, though. This eye-catching little bun makes the perfect edging or low hedge, needing little to no maintenance.

Why grow Bubbly Wine weigela?
– Fabulous color combination
– Tough landscape performance
– Attracts pollinators


Light: It gets the best foliage color and highest bloom count in full sun.

Soil: Adaptable to most soils, except those that stay wet.

Water: Average water needs.

Fertilizing: 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.

Pruning: 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. Maintains its habit naturally, no need to prune to shape.

Other: Makes a great cut flower or foliage filler for arrangements.
