Maintenance Notes 
Prefers well-drained soils but fairly adaptable to other soil types. It is best to prune immediately after flowering. Will flower sporadically on current season's growth. Medium moisture. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for the recommended rate of application.

A cool weigela with dark red-pink flowers in spring and remarkable foliage that magically turns to a ghostly, iridescent butter yellow as the summer progresses. Provides seasons of color. Sporadically reblooms during the summer into fall. Lightly pruning will encourage repeat flowering.
