Magical® Robin Weigela Care
For the Magical® Robin Weigela to thrive, it should be grown in full sun. It can tolerate most soil types as long as they are kept moist but not soggy. To get the most from its wonderful red blooms, a general, slow-release fertilizer can be applied to the soil as the new growth appears in early spring. Weigela shrubs require regular watering until they have established a solid root system. However, don’t be tempted to overwater as this can lead to root rot.
Once the flowers have faded in early summer, this shrub can be pruned by removing about one-third of the flowering stems. It is advisable not to prune later in the year as this can result in losing the following year’s blooms.
