'Midnight Sun' Reblooming Weigela


Celebrate summer with Midnight Sun weigela, a neat and tidy bun-shaped weigela with glossy, blazing orange and red summer-autumn foliage. Perfect for the front of the border, it functions much as a coleus would, but without having to replant it every year. It does bear pink flowers in spring, however, this plant’s form and colorful summer through autumn foliage are what makes it special.

Maintenance Notes: 

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.
