Large bronze-green leaves and fiery pink blossoms characterize the Shining Sensation Weigela from the Southern Living Plant Collection. A blooming machine, the Shining Sensations hot-pink funnel-shaped flowers engulf the plant in May and June and then continue to sporadically bloom throughout the summer. The glossy burgundy foliage contrasts beautifully with the brilliant magenta flowers that demand attention. This shrub is perfect for sunny locations and will attract multitudes of butterflies and hummingbirds during the late Spring season. Plant the Shining Sensation in well-drained garden soil and fertilize after the first flowering of the year to keep this plant thriving.
