How to Use Wine & Roses Weigela in the Landscape
These dramatic shrubs are a useful size that can be used along a patio for a bit of privacy, or as a “friendly fence” between you and your neighbor. Use these beautiful plants alongside a garage or the side of your home.
Wine & Roses Weigela is the perfect choice to repeat as a colorful backdrop for your perennial garden. Include them as a dark foliage element in a mixed flowering tree and shrub border.
Plant them at regular intervals for an even display. Or, create unique vignettes with partner plants by varying the distance between shrubs.
Add them to your foundation planting, allowing plenty of space to reach their full height and spread. They can accent your entryway with easy style.
Wine & Roses Weigela complements many different garden styles. It can be used in a modern or contemporary garden to line a pool deck or as a minimalist foundation planting. The abundant blooms also coordinate beautifully in a lavish cottage-style garden.
Dark, handsome foliage pops against modern facades and finishes, and the hot pink blooms bring a touch of the tropics to lake houses.
They are the perfect size for a fun, modern, colorful hedge along a fence or patio. To achieve a solid screen, plant them 2-3 feet on center. Measure from the center of one plant to the center of the next.
Why not try a gently curving line? No one says hedges have to be stick straight, for heaven’s sakes!
Create a phenomenal mass planting on a sunny slope or wide, open area. Use a zig-zagged planting pattern 2 or 3 feet apart on center. Keep new plantings weeded as the shrubs grow together.
Commercial property owners, take note. The color impact of this easy care plant used “en masse” is incredibly memorable. Draw potential customers to your site with this beautiful display.
Add these hardy, pretty flowering plants as a facing plant along windbreaks. They’ll also make lovely snow fencing as a hedge planted perpendicularly against your prevailing winter winds near the driveway.
Wine & Roses Weigela make excellent cut flowers. Try using several of the colorful branches in flower arrangements. Be sure to start cutting them as soon as the pink buds begin to show in spring. Enjoy!
#ProPlantTips for Care
Wine & Roses Weigela is a fast-grower, so you’ll see results in no time.
Plant in full sun for the best bloom and leaf color. Roots prefer well-drained soil. Provide a moderate amount of supplemental water if you don’t get enough rain.
The flowers bloom on last year’s wood in the spring. Don’t prune your plant until the first spring flush of blooms is finished. Then you can give your Wine & Roses Weigela a haircut, if needed.
Renew older plants by removing a third of the oldest, fattest stems all the way down to the ground. Leave the younger, thinner branches for the best bloom and a more natural form.
It doesn’t have any significant disease or pest problems, so you can be assured of an easy-to-care-for plant. Best of all between the brilliant flowers and picturesque foliage, the beautiful Proven Winners® shrub gives season long color.
