Weigela florida Wine and Roses = 'Alexandra'PBR
Weigela - 3 litres
Weigela florida 'Wine and Roses' is arguably the best ever dark leaved weigela with one of the best names in the book to boot. Large glossy wine-purple foliage is the perfect foil to a mass of rich rose-pink flowers borne in May and June. An ideal combination for a shrub or in reality!
Small hardy deciduous shrub. Plant in any reasonable well-drained fertile soil in full sun or partial shade. Prune after flowering to promote fresh growth and maintain compactness.
