Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:
It’s easy to see why Weigela was a favored landscape shrub for Grandma, and still rates on the top of the list today. A true performer, these adaptable plants offer months of flower power – especially now with our new repeat bloomers! Funnel-shaped flowers are particularly attractive to hummingbirds, and this compact form provides new opportunities to use Weigela in smaller spaces than ever before.
A no-fuss shrub, perfect for a mixed border, Magical Robin is guaranteed to add season-long color and is one of the first plants hummingbirds come to in the spring. The profusion of repeat blooming red flowers make this new selection one that ranks far above those used by Grandma. Magical Robin is happiest in full sun in the northern states to part shade in coastal regions.
