#ProPlantTips for Care:

Weigela prefers full sun for the best flowering but can tolerate some light afternoon shade, especially for shrubs planted in the hotter of their favored growing zones. It's adaptive to a variety of soil types and even does well in urban settings! Weigela shrubs do best in average garden soils and enjoy moderate moisture levels. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture in the ground as well as insulates the root system from heat and chill. Weigela won't need much pruning after flowering or deadheading to trigger a rebloom. However, if you wish to give them some pruning, just be sure to do it right after that first spring flush of color. Weigela does benefit from a renewal pruning every few years, with the oldest stems removed that are not as productive to keep the shrub dense, loaded in blooms and lushly covered in foliage.

  • Most Blooms & Best Color in Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Adaptive to Various Well-Drained Soils - Tolerates Urban Conditions
  • Easy Care & Low-Maintenance & Deer Resistant
  • Prune After Spring Bloom & No Deadheading Required

Gorgeous color, and easy care, the Proven Winners® ColorChoice® My Monet® Sunset Weigela will light up your landscape! Order your at Nature Hills today!
