Weigela - French Lace™
French Lace™ Weigela, weigela florida 'Brigela' (PP12,666), is a new weigela that has an abundant amount of ruby-red flowers blooming in summer.
Striking lime-yellow leaf margins on green leaves provide a dramatic backdrop for these ruby-red flowers. The foliage of French Lace™ has orange and red overtones in fall.
This weigela is a real stand-out in the garden, and has an awesome effect when planted in mass.
It forms a rounded shrub that grows 4-5 feet tall and as wide. This large upright form makes an ideal high profile accent plant.
French Lace™ is equally suited for the background of perennial beds or to cloak unattractive fence lines. This weigela is also good as a shrub border, foundation or specimen plant.
A deciduous shrub, it requires full sun. One should also follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system.
For a formal appearance, shear annually after flowering.
