Does your garden need some energizing? The Electric Love® Weigela (Weigela x ‘ZR1’) will zap hot fresh color and sulking dark foliage into your landscape without sacrificing cherished space! Carmine red blooms light up the bruised bronzy-purple foliage all summer!

These red tube-shaped blossoms are a hummingbird's dream! You’re sure to see a few flitting about as they sip nectar! You’ll also see swarms of bees and butterflies and hummingbird moths visit throughout the day! The dark foliage and itty-bitty clusters of flowers are a dramatic contrast and sure to add black-tie formality to garden beds and borders of any size!

Electric Love® stays naturally small, only reaching 1-2 feet in height and width at maturity! Ideal container-ready plants, as well as edging and formal landscape barriers. Dress up any garden just like a little black dress with that perfect shade of red lipstick does to a gal's wardrobe!

Planting and Application:

Weigela are magnificent bloomers! Often having repeat blooms after the summer flush, plant these dynamic mini-shrubs as borders to mark the division between lawn and garden beds and borders, add depth to foundation plantings and other border plants as a dramatic facer shrub, or in groupings to add pops of accent color among more brightly colored shrubs and perennials!

Electric Love® is of course perfect for Pollinator and bird-friendly landscapes! Add a jolt of color to tired Perennial and Cottage borders! But a plant of this size is ready-made for container gardening and even gardeners without a garden! Rooftop plantings, porch and patio planters, and balcony gardens can enjoy these electrifying little numbers!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Weigela are easy to care for little gems! Provide at least 6 hours of direct light a day, but allow some afternoon shade in the hottest growing zones. Any well-drained, moderately moist soil in the ground or a pot with ample drainage and enriched soil works great!

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Moderate Yet Consistent Moisture & 3-4” Layer of Mulch
  • Cold Hardy & Low Maintenance
  • Prune After Flowering

Electric Love® Weigela is just what your garden needs this year! Energize your beds and borders, or porch and patio planters with fantastic pollinator plants available at NatureHills.com today!
