Colorful foliage is matched with colorful flowers!
Rubidor Weigela (Weigela florida 'Olympiade’) is a truly unique look for old-fashioned weigelas. The combination of intensely colored foliage and brightly colored flowers is unparalleled in the weigela world.
The foliage starts out a sweet spring green but quickly turns into a bright chartreuse…or neon lime green…or 80’s acid yellow. Sometimes all at once! And many times the leaves are edged in an even brighter yellow. For your own safety, you better get out your sunglasses! This is truly colorful.
Blooming starts in late April and ramps up quickly. Before long the shrub is covered in an unreal number of blooms that are a ‘you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it’ shade of bright reddish/pinkish/watermelon. They practically scream “Look at me!” against the yellow/green foliage. Blooming lasts for a long time in the spring and then this prolific rebloomer will show off several more times throughout the summer. (Never with the veracity of the spring bloom, but enough to remind you that this plant knows it’s cool.)
Rubidor handles pruning well and benefits from a fresh cut in late winter.
