"Wine & Roses" is a patented variety of weigela (Weigela florida), a flowering shrub. The deep, burgundy foliage and rose-pink flowers give the plant its name, while its low maintenance, pest and disease resistance and attraction to butterflies give it a place in many residential landscapes. "Wine & Roses" weigela grows up to 5 feet tall and can be pruned to into hedges, borders or grown as a garden accent.
Remove any dead or damaged stems by cutting them back to the main branch.
Trim off any stems that cross over others.
Cut off any shoots thinner than the majority of the others. If a shoot appears thin and weak, cut it back to its point of origin.
Prune the entire "Wine & Roses" shrub back by one-third after the blooming period. This will encourage the plant to produce new growth and may also cause a second bloom this season.
Rake the planting area free of leaves, branches and other garden detritus after pruning and water the "Wine & Roses" weigela until the water puddles.
