Weigela florida 'Pink Poppet'


Overall Description


This is an improved version of the old fashioned standard Pink Weigela that has been around seemingly since the beginning of time, lol. A dense, spreading, rounded shrub with solid medium green foliage . Flowers are trumpet shaped, pastel pink in color, and begin blooming as early as April in warmer climates. Once blooms start, they will last easily until the first of July - blooms have been observed in warmer climates as late as October. A very vigorous grower - many times as much as 4ft per year, but can be maintained at virtually any desired height / shape with trimming. Good for use as a shrub border, or in group / mass plantings where a good mid-sized shrub is needed. Full sun to partial shade with average soil & water requirements make this a very versatile shrub that can be used in a wide variety of situations & locations.

--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.
