Wine & Roses® Weigela
Hot Pink Flowers and Burgundy Foliage
Wine & Roses Weigela, Weigela florida 'Alexandra', is an ornamental, deciduous shrub sought after for its spectacular spring flowers and colorful foliage. Plant several en masse for a dramatic display in a side yard, or even just one as a decorative accent to your front yard.
You’re sure to adore the impressive spring blooms. The flowers appear singly or in clusters, and each is over an inch long—a tasty treat for hummingbirds and butterflies in your yard. The rich, dark burgundy foliage of your Wine & Roses Weigela provides a striking contrast to the hot-pink, funnel-shaped flowers that appear in the spring. Even when spring has passed, you may still see the occasional blossom throughout the summer.
Your Wine & Roses Weigela will grow to 5 feet in height with an equal spread. It’s a fast-grower, so you’ll see results in no time. The Wine & Roses Weigela doesn’t have any significant disease or pest problems, so you can be assured of a relatively easy-to-care-for plant.
Between the brilliant flowers and picturesque foliage, your Wine & Roses Weigela will easily keep your landscape awash in color for three seasons.
Wine & Roses Weigela was awarded the Gold Medal Plant Award by the Pennsylvania Horticulture Society in 2000. Once you have one in your yard, you’ll certainly agree that it’s a winner!
