Wine and Roses covers itself in an abundance of rosy pink flowers that appear in late spring and often reblooms in summer. Dark purple foliage stays clean all summer. Wine and Roses have proven to be a hummingbird magnet for us.
Weigelia Wine and Roses
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.
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Weigela Wine and Roses plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Weigela Wine and Roses to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. We recommend Bio-Tone fertilizer by Espoma at planting.
