Weigela - Java Red
The Weigela 'Java Red', Weigela florida 'Java Red', is one of the oldest Weigelas. It is a dwarf, only rarely exceeding four feet of height, making it at its biggest half the size of the majority of Weigelas.
Due to its compact habit it is one of the least prone to ranginess when left unpruned, though some degree of ranginess seems inescapable even with a compact dwarf.
This compact, mounding shrub displays attractive red buds that open to deep pink blooms. The deep green foliage has an interesting purplish cast.
This plant is useful as a background planting, summer screen or in shrub borders. This shrub is deciduous.
