Plant a few of these for a colorful border at the back of your flower bed or use just one for a stunning splash of color that will persist all season.

Any place you put a Maroon Swoon is sure to draw your eye with its fantastic color and long-lasting display.
Your Maroon Swoon Weigela is, just as it sounds, a one-of-a-kind shrub that can make you “swoon” with its breathtaking, deep maroon color and exceptional performance. This remarkable shrub features lightly-serrated leaves of deep green hue and brilliant, bell-shaped flowers that burst onto the scene in spring and persist throughout the summer (and even into autumn). The prolific bloom is a stand-out in any setting, with its outstanding beauty only rivaled by its ease of care.
Maroon Swoon Weigela is a deciduous shrub growing up to 5 feet in height with a 3 foot spread. It has an upright, rounded habit and mounded nature. Maroon Swoon is cold hardy to -30 Fahrenheit and requires very little care. In fact, you can leave it be, or give it a light pruning in spring, with periodic deadheading, to enhance its already stellar performance. Wildlife loves Maroon Swoon for its lively color and delicious fragrance, but deer tend to pass it by.
With so many fascinating shrubs to choose from, it can be difficult to select the perfect one for your home. However, Maroon Swoon Weigela makes the choice easy. Its ease of care, prolific performance and radiant beauty makes Maroon Swoon Weigela the optimal choice for almost any location.
