Dark Purple Foliage and Pink Flowers

The Dark Horse Weigela, Weigela florida 'Dark Horse' PP14381, is a new cultivar that is characterized by a superior compact habit, dark purple leaves, and pink flowers that contrast with the dark foliage. In combination, these traits set ‘Dark Horse’ apart from all other existing varieties of weigela.

This is an ideal choice for late spring color in combination with conifers and broadleaf evergreens. Will attract hummingbirds! This old-fashioned, flowering deciduous shrub has very dark foliage and deep pink flowers that contrast well with the foliage.

'Dark Horse' makes a great landscape plant, and it retains its color interest throughout the season. It is quite attractive when grown as a hedge. It will mature to a 2'-3' mound in full sun.

'Dark Horse' is easy to grow, and adapts to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer.

* Deep Pink Flowers
* Dark Purple Leaves
* Attract Hummingbirds
