Red Prince Weigela

Attracts Hummingbirds

This shrub is sure to attract attention and hummingbirds when it bursts into bloom in late spring or early summer—and when it blooms a second time in the fall! Rich red, funnel-shaped flowers cover the plant. Growing 6-9 ft. tall with a similar spread, Red Prince Weigela is an upright, deciduous shrub with an oval-rounded habit, making it a good choice for a specimen plant. More cold hardy than some weigelas, Red Prince is a favorite flowering shrub for northern gardeners. Grows best when planted in full sun. Deer tend to avoid. Zones 4-8.
