Great mid-size weigela. Initially it was planted in a part-sun location, but I could see it wasn't quite happy. The following spring I transplanted it to a full-sun spot and it is doing great! Flowered beautifully it's first spring. I love the slightly purple-ish color of the leaves and the more compact form. Flowers are a strong/darkish hot pink, and lasted about a month. It is in an unprotected spot with little extra winter preparations. Low maintenance, except pruning if you feel it is needed.
