Dark Horse Weigela
Weigela florida 'Dark Horse' PP #14,381
|Description||Dark bronze foliage with lime green venation combines with purplish pink tubular flowers to make a dramatic statement in the landscape. The neat, compact habit is easy to maintain. Perfect for an accent or shrub border. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing, low, spreading shrub; reaches 3 ft. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Hedge|
|Design Ideas||A smaller version of Wine & Roses better fits into small gardens but still deserves high profile locations in foundation planting. Best located on light color walls or use the intense foliage color to mark entries around porch or stoop. Essential to the middle of a shrub border for multi-season interest. Makes a good accent against yellow and lime green foliage plants. Great choice for romantic cottage garden compositions and causal country gardens along picket fences or rails.|
|Companion Plants||Hydrangea (Hydrangea); Peony (Paeonia); Coneflower (Echinacea); Spirea (Spiraea); Salvia (Salvia)|
|Care||Thrives in average, well-drained soils. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune only as needed to shape after bloom period.|
