Overall Description


Czechmark Trilogy is a brand new series of Weigela that was developed, and first introduced in the Czech Republic ( hence the name ). It is a very hardy, trouble free flowering shrub.......as are most Weigela cultivars. But what sets the Czechmark Trilogy series apart from any other Weigela out there is the three distinct bloom colors that appear simultaneously on the same plant! When blooms start in early May ( depending on hardiness zone ), you get a nice balanced mixture of white, pastel pink, and dark pinkish red flowers on each & every plant. And the blooms are all mixed together to form a truly eye popping display of colors to brighten up any garden or landscape.

Nice medium green foliage stays attractive all season long, and gives way to a powerful bloom show. No dead heading is required, however we've noticed that blooming can be extended with repeat bloomings if old expired flowers are pruned / removed. Flowers are typical of most Weigela, being funnel / trumpet shaped - approximately 1" - 1 1/4" in length. Blooms are great for attracting hummingbirds, butterflies, and yes, even bees.......which are great for pollination of other garden plants.

Czechmark Trilogy Weigela can also be trimmed / pruned to just about any height or width - or can be left to grow naturally all season long. We recommend a pruning in late winter, just before spring bud break, to encourage overall plant shape, fullness, and maximum bloom potential for the upcoming season.

Good growth rate, and excellent hardiness make this variety very desirable for many landscape applications. Can be used as a large mass planting, a colorful accent in front of larger, taller evergreens - just about anywhere that needs a serious splash of seasonal color.



Plant Facts & Specifications


--Mature Height : 3 - 4 ft ( can be maintained at different height by pruning )

--Mature Width : 3 - 4 ft. ( can be maintained at different widths by pruning )

--Growth Rate :
Fast ( 10" - 14" avg per yr )

--Hardiness Zones :
4 - 8

--Sun Exposure :
Full sun is best for maximum bloom color and foliage density & color. But will also accept partial shade.

--Soil Preference :
Average to slightly sandy - very adaptable. Soil must be well drained though. Mulch well in fall & winter.

--Foliage Color & Texture :
Deciduous - broadleaf. Heavy textured, somewhat glossy green foliage holds up rather well all season long. Leaves are slightly serrated along the edges.

--Flower, Cone, Or Berry Facts :
Flowers - trumpet shaped blooms are a nice multicolored mix of white, pink & dark pinkish red color, and average approximately 1 1/4" in length. One of the most prolific blooming Weigela varieties we have seen.

--Diseases / Insects :
No serious diseases or pests have been reported. Leaf spot has been very occasionally observed in areas with high moisture, especially during overnight hours. Would be wise to keep an occasional eye out for a rogue Japanese Beetle here or there.

--Recommended Spacing :
No specific spacing recommendations - all depends on the exact use that the planting is intended for. Feel free to e-mail us with project specifications for customer recommendations.

--Deer Resistance Rating :
Lowest Resistance [ 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 ] Highest Resistance

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
