Red Weigela Description

Red Weigela Shrub- 2-3'in Height

Red Weigela - Weigela Florida - is one of the several variants of Weigela and a type that made Weigelas a name to reckon with.

This Shrub is an oval-shaped multi-stemmed deciduous shrub that is lush and upright, showcasing its stunning red tubular blooms against dark green foliage. It is best known by the names Red Prince and Sonic Bloom. It is also referred to as the cultivator of Weigela, Florida, in certain places. 

This Shrub blooms with lipstick-red flowers from late spring until early summer, followed by waves of reblooming until frost but with fewer flowers. For continuous bloom, there is no need to deadhead. If you deem it necessary to prune your Shrub, do it as soon as the spring bloom appears. Weigela is a beautiful choice for your yard, with a beautiful arching habit that serves as an anchor for vast beds.

Native to Eastern Asia, it develops at a moderate pace, reaching a height and width of up to 4-5 feet. Even though the Shrub may withstand little shade, it will blossom more profusely in full sun. It attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees because of its beautiful color and excellent nectar. When the flowers are in bloom, the hummingbirds are in their bliss. Even though the Shrub is adaptable to other soil types, it prefers well-drained soils.

It is capable of blooming flowers on both new and old wood. If necessary, you should fertilize it in early spring with a slow-release fertilizer made specifically for the Shrub. Using this fertilizer, you can assure that your Shrub is always well-nourished and that the next rebloom will occur. 

 This Shrub is regarded as a low-maintenance shrub so that you can take pleasure in its attractive characteristics without having to devote a lot of time and effort to it. During the initial wave of spring blossoms, many people mistake this deciduous Shrub for an Azalea or Rhododendron. 

There are many ways you may use this attractive plant in landscape designs. You may use it as an ornamental hedge or foundation planting, as an eye-catching focal point in your garden, as part of a decorative shrub border, or as an attractive background to a perennial garden. It's also used as an excellent container plant.

No matter where you put this Shrub, it'll be a splash of vibrant color. This plant needs a lot of space to spread out. Hence, to avoid an unattractive and packed area that halts the development of your Shrub once it has reached maturity, you need to choose a location with plenty of open space. They are generally hardy, so it is advised that you opt for an area protected from cold north winds since it helps reduce winter damage.
