Sonic Bloom® Red Weigela florida 'Verweig 6' USPP 25,132, CPBR 4,716
Available by Early May
Lipstick red flowers in spring. Repeat flowers until frost. Reblooms without deadheading. Attracts hummingbirds.
Prefers well-drained soils but fairly adaptable to other soil types. If necessary, prune immediately after the spring bloom. Best flowering occurs in full sun, but light shade isn't harmful, particularly in warmer climates.
If desired, fertilize in early spring with a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants, like a rose fertilizer.
