Dramatic Foliage and Prolific Flowers
Tuxedo Weigela, Weigela x 'Velda' , is an ornamental shrub with a dramatic presentation. Plant one at the front of your perennial bed for a bold splash of color, or line your walkway with these hardy and decorative shrubs. You can even place a few of these versatile plants in containers for your patio or front porch.
The result of a top breeding program, your Tuxedo Weigela has emerged a strong grower with loads and loads of bright flowers against striking foliage. The oval, slightly-serrated leaves almost steal the show with their deep, burgundy-green coloration that is so dramatic, they’re almost black in appearance. However, the bell-shaped flowers are the real scene-stealer, prolifically blanketing your shrub in pristine white blooms from summer into fall.
Your Tuxedo Weigela will perform well without your attention, but an early spring pruning and later deadheading will increase its already abundant flower production. As an added benefit, hummingbirds, bees and butterflies will also enjoy your Tuxedo Weigela’s beauty and fragrance.
Tuxedo Weigela is a deciduous shrub growing to about 3 feet tall with a 4 foot spread. It’s an upright shrub with a mounded nature and compact form. Tuxedo is tolerant of a variety of soil types and is cold hardy to -30 Fahrenheit. It will perform well in part sun, but develops its best color in full sun.
If you’re seeking a vivid splash of color for your yard, then look no further than Tuxedo Weigela. With its sensational foliage and long-blooming flowers, it’s a high-performing shrub you won’t want to miss.
