SONIC BLOOM WINE™ Weigela

Zone: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Exposure: Full Sun Height: 4-5' Width/Spread: 3-4'

There are two things gardeners love most about weigela. The first is dreamy dark foliage and a close second is abundant Long blooming. We’ve combined those two lovely traits into one super easy-to-grow plant. Sonic Bloom Wine™ has elegant dusty burgundy foliage that perfectly sets up bright bubblegum-pink blooms from Spring, Summer. With such a compelling color combo, you’ll probably get just as many human visitors as hummingbirds. Its slightly narrower-than-tall habit is right at home in the middle of a border or foundation planting, surrounded by other pollinator favorites.

Why grow Sonic Bloom Wine weigela?

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.
