Vivid, ruby red blossoms cover entire plant in the spring. They stand out against equally showy variegated foliage. Leaves are a clear green with dramatic golden leaf margins turning in fall to orange and burgundy tones. Large upright form makes ideal high profile accent. Equally suited for background of perennial beds and to cloak unattractive or fence lines. Deciduous. Full sun. Fast growing to 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide.

Design IdeasA uniquely variegated weigela 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 burgundy foliage plants. Great choice for romantic cottage garden compositions and causal country gardens along picket fences or rails.
