Isn't it romantic! Rosy-pink flowers add a touch of romance when displayed against the dark glossy foliage. The foliage is much darker than that of older varieties like 'Java Red'. It contrasts beautifully with the rosy-pink flowers, making for a high impact display in the garden. This variety produces copious amounts of flowers in spring, and will re-bloom throughout the summer. The trumpet-like flowers are adored by hummingbirds! Try using Wine & Roses weigela's colorful branches in flower arrangements. It can also be enjoyed as an accent plant or used for a dramatic mass planting. It is fast growing and trouble free, making it an easy way to add season long color to the garden.
