This is a dwarf form of Wine & Roses® weigela that is perfect for the front of the border or container gardens. It can be used as an alternative to ‘Crimson Pygmy’ barberry. Although it is not as prolific a bloomer as Wine & Roses®, it will occasionally produce pink flowers in spring.

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.
