If the weigelas you've pondered over in the past have been tempting but just too large for your garden, Weigela florida 'Elvera' MIDNIGHT WINE is the perfect fit. This unique deciduous shrub with burgundy-purple foliage and a profusion of reddish pink trumpet-shaped flowers grows only 2 to 3 feet tall making it indispensable as an eye-catching specimen in the garden or container. Plant several in the perennial or shrub border for alluring color and to attract hummingbirds plus it makes a great low hedge.

This weigela is easy to grow. It prefers a moist to well-drained soil and will tolerate sandy or clay conditions. Plant it in a location with full sun to light or open shade. The foliage will be the deepest color with more sun. Once established it needs only occasional watering during dry weather to look its best. Very little pruning is required when the plant is young. Once this weigela is well established, older twiggy stems and weak shoots should be removed after flowering. This will encourage the vigorous new growth that provides the best show.
