Garden Plant: Rumba Weigela
Product Description: Rumba Weigela
Summer- Long Color and Exquisite Blooms Rumba Weigela, Weigela florida ‘ Rumba’, is a deciduous shrub with long-blooming flowers and foliage color.
Rumba would be impressive planted en masse in a naturalized area of your home or on a small slope.
As a semi-dwarf, it’s also small enough to work well in a container on your patio, or used in your perennial bed for continuous color.
Your Rumba Weigela is a delightfully colorful shrub.
Even its foliage offers something to the color spectrum.
Each 4-inch long, yellow-hued green leaf features a purple-tinted edge and provides a dense backdrop for the colorful flowers.
The bloom begins in June, and what a bloom it is! Your Rumba will be blanketed with trumpet-shaped, hot pink/red blossoms all summer long.
The brilliant flowers, accented with yellow throats, diminish in number as the season progresses.
However, the flowers will still maintain a strong presence in your yard into September.
Rumba Weigela will grow to 3 feet tall with a 4-foot spread.
It has a dense, rounded nature and no significant disease or insect issues.
Rumba prefers full sun for best flowering, but can tolerate some light shade.
It’s adaptive to a variety of soil types and even does well in urban settings.
Under ideal conditions, Rumba will live up to 30 years.
For summer-long interest, even when not in bloom, Rumba Weigela is a terrific choice.
