How to Use Tuxedo™ Weigela in the Landscape
Add several of these shrubs for a dramatic presentation. They can be grown in large containers, or in the ground.
Repeat their use along the length of your perennial bed for a bold backdrop. Or, use them all on their own in a special shrub border.
They make wonderful foundation shrubs against gray, white or stone-clad homes. Their multi-stemmed branching and compact habit look terrific, even in wintertime.
Add a row of hardy and decorative shrubs in high-end containers for your patio, pool deck or front porch. These work beautifully as"Thrillers".
Dress them up or down. Change out your throw pillows and candles for a fresh look each season.
With its black and white coloration, Tuxedo Weigela acts like a neutral. The shrub has a lot of impact on its own, but it truly supports any accent color you choose.
Add a pop of dark purple, bright magenta, or true red to your scene with smaller perennials in smaller containers, or as edging plants. Just imagine the cheerful impact bright yellows, golds and oranges would have against Tuxedo Weigela.
Create a gorgeous low floral hedge by planting several shrubs in a row. Stagger a double row for faster impact.
To achieve this designer look, plant them two and a half feet apart on center. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Plant in full sun for the best blooming and rich foliage color. A partial shade position will result in a looser form and reduced flowering.
Give it well-drained soil. Top dress with a thick layer of wood chip mulch, but please take care to ensure the mulch doesn't touch the stems directly.
Plant them at least 6 feet away from structures. Plants need good air circulation, and you'll love watching the breeze play through the pretty branches.
Prune Tuxedo Weigela in early spring pruning. Deadhead spent blooms as you like to further increase its already abundant flower production.
Enjoy these marvelous shrubs in your landscape. Order Tuxedo Weigela, plant and relax. It's a perfect choice.
