Three-Toned, Trumpet-Shaped Blooms
Carnaval Weigela, Weigela florida 'Courtalor', is a deciduous shrub with adorable spring/summer blooms. Use just one as a specimen plant near your front door (where you’re sure to enjoy its bloom). These also work well planted en masse in a naturalized area.
Your Carnaval Weigela is most beloved for its showy flowers. Resplendent in shades of white, pink and red, each trumpet-shaped bloom is a delicate jewel amid the glossy, green foliage. The first blossoms appear in late spring/early summer.
Just when you think the floral display is over, your Carnaval Weigela will present you with yet another bloom late summer. When not in flower, the oblong, 4-inch, textured leaves will do a wonderful job filling out your shrub for an attractive appearance in your landscape.
Carnaval Weigela will grow 5 feet tall with an equal spread. Its branches naturally arch, but if you prefer a more upright appearance then simply apply your pruning shears. Carnaval does best in sunny locations with moist soils but tolerates poor soils, including clay. It’s drought tolerant and transplants well.
There are many flowering shrubs on the market today, but to find one that has adorable flowers throughout the summer, and on a hardy shrub that can take less-than-perfect conditions is a valuable plant for your yard.
