Description

The lipstick-red flowers of Sonic Bloom® Red weigela are remarkable enough to make this a choice selection, but a burst of flowers in May followed by waves of rebloom until frost make it positively extraordinary. Deadheading is not needed for continuous bloom. Sonic Bloom® is a registered trademark of the Syngenta Group Company.

The Sonic Bloom series of weigela are the 2019 Flowering Shrubs of the Year.
