Interesting Notes

Use the Right Soil This variety of Weigela needs soil that is both extremely fertile and well drained. If you are planting your "Wine and Roses" Weigela in heavy or loamy soil you need to monitor its moisture content. You need to avoid water logging these soils, as it can lead to root and step rot. When Full Sun is the Best While the "Wine and Roses" Weigela can be grown in both partial shade and full sun, it is best to grow your Weigela in full sun in the northern areas. Morning sun afternoon shade is required for southern areas. This will encourage the plant to produce leaves and flowers with more vibrant colors, which will in turn be more effective for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds.
