Garden Plant: Pink Poppet Weigela
Product Description: Pink Poppet Weigela
Beautiful Pink Blooms Twice a Year! The Pink Poppet Weigela, Weigela florida ‘ Pink Poppet’, is the first in an upcoming line of weigelas with similar “ground-cover” habit.
It has an almost trailing form reaching only 2′ tall and spreading up to 40″.
This dwarf, dense, rounded, deciduous shrub produces funnel shaped shell-pink flowers that are born in profusion in June, and then with a lighter re-bloom again in late summer.
‘ Pink Poppet’ has emerald green foliage all season long that contrasts nicely with the flowers.
It is easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun.
Needs full sun for best flowering and foliage color, but will tolerate very light or sun dappled shade.
* Great as a groundcover
* Easy to grow
