Classy like a glass of fine red wine, the Tuxedo™ Weigela, also known as the Date Night™ Tuxedo™ Weigela, blooms beautiful tubular white flowers with a hint of soft peachy tones. The shrub’s one-of-a-kind foliage comprises deep purple leaves, so dark they almost appear black in some areas. The contrast between the bright flowers and mysterious foliage makes this shrub a showstopper in a mixed garden bed. With a maximum height of 5 feet and a spread of 4 feet, your flowers will begin growing between the middle of May and June.

With its moderate growth rate, your fragrant Tuxedo™ Weigela will grow approximately 12 to 24 inches per year. Native to Eastern Asia, this deciduous shrub is deer resistant and does not require much maintenance. In rare cases, it may become infected with a fungal disease which will cause the plant to start drying from the bottom upwards. To remedy this, you can spray your shrub with an organic fungicide, which is safe for children and animals. This drought-tolerant plant can be used for perennial or shrub borders, foundation planting, and along pathways. Your shrub is likely to attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Tuxedo™ Weigela Plant Care

To plant your shrub, dig a hole that is double the width of the pot it came in and make sure it is deep enough so that the top of the root ball is aligned with the ground around it. Use well-draining soil and ensure that your shrub is planted in an area where it can take in at least 6 hours of direct, unfiltered sun on a daily basis. This shrub doesn’t require a specific pH level but grows best with a soil pH ranging from 5.5 to 7.5. Although not necessary, you can fertilize your shrub a single time with an all-purpose fertilizer, preferably during early springtime when the leaves begin sprouting.

You can trim your Tuxedo™ Weigela during the spring after the threat of frost has passed. You should carefully cut off the seed pods belonging to the flowers that grew the previous year. Doing so will encourage new growth and keep your shrub in optimal condition. Furthermore, you can also prune it to achieve a more desirable shape. To rejuvenate your shrub, locate any branches that appear aged or woody and trim them from the base. Be careful not to trim more than a third of your shrub’s total branches.

Tuxedo™ Weigela Plant Spacing

You should space your Tuxedo™ Weigela shrubs roughly 24 to 30 inches apart. This will ensure your shrubs’ branches can grow out comfortably.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
