Flowering Weigelia Midnight Wine
Weigelia Midnight Wine is ideal for the front of the border or for edging the perennial bed. This tidy mound of dark burgundy-purple leaves can be used as an accent plant or a dramatic mass planting. Consider using it instead of 'Crimson Pygmy' Barberry: Midnight Wine doesn't have any thorns! It may produce a light crop of pink flowers in spring. Midnight Wine is maintenance free and needs no pruning because its habit is perfect the way it is. Just give it sun and water and you'll have intense color from spring to fall.
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Weigelia Midnight Wine 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 Weigelia Midnight Wine 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 at planting.
