Weigela blooms and foliage always stand out in the spring garden, and Sonic Bloom Ghost Weigela (Weigela florida 'Carlton') takes it a step further, with reblooming in summer or fall. This gives you months of flowering. What's more, the shrub's foliage starts out lime green in spring and transitions to a bright golden color in summer. The change in leaf color and nearly continuous blooming make this a modern and dynamic version of the traditional weigela.
Sonic Bloom Ghost Weigela grows to nearly 5 feet high and 4 feet wide, depending on conditions. A tall weigela like Sonic Bloom Ghost Weigela makes a perfect backdrop to other plants or a border plant. For best flowering and foliage color, plant your weigela in a sunny or partially sunny spot. Weigela is hardy in zones 4 through 8 and is deer resistant. Sonic Bloom flowers emerge in spring, adding bursts of rich red above the colorful branches.
Sonic Bloom Ghost Weigela Care
Sonic Bloom Ghost Weigela also can hold its own as a prominent plant in spring through fall. The leaves drop in winter but reappear each spring. All you have to do is choose a spot in your landscape that gets at least 6 hours of sun a day and plant in soil that drains well. Add a little mulch below the plant and water regularly for best results. You can add a slow-release fertilizer made for shrubs and trees to an early spring watering. Prune your weigela after the final flowers begin to fade.
Sonic Bloom Ghost Weigela Spacing
Be sure to give your Sonic Bloom Ghost Weigela plenty of room to grow, spacing the plants 4 to 5 feet from one another or from other shrubs. Then just wait while it grows upright and fills with plenty of red blooms.
