Product Description

Weigelia florida cv “Bristol Ruby” is a striking deciduous shrub known for its vibrant and eye-catching appearance in the garden. This cultivar is a popular choice among garden enthusiasts for its abundant clusters of tubular, trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom in a stunning deep ruby-red hue during late spring to early summer. The flowers are not only visually appealing but also attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, making it a valuable addition to any garden.

Cultivation:

  1. Location: Plant your "Bristol Ruby" Weigela in a location that receives full to partial sunlight. It prefers at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day for optimal growth and flowering.

  2. Soil: Well-draining, fertile soil is ideal for this shrub. Ensure the soil is rich in organic matter and has good drainage to prevent waterlogged roots.

  3. Planting: Dig a hole that is as deep as the root ball and two to three times wider. Place the shrub in the hole, making sure the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil. Space multiple "Bristol Ruby" Weigelas at least 5-6 feet apart to allow for proper air circulation.

  4. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the first growing season. Once established, it is somewhat drought-tolerant, but regular watering during dry spells will promote healthier growth and flowering.

  5. Mulching: Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the shrub to help retain soil moisture and suppress weeds. Mulch also keeps the soil temperature more stable.

  6. Pruning: Pruning can be done after flowering to maintain a tidy shape and encourage more blooms. Remove dead or damaged branches and trim back the shrub to control its size. Pruning can also rejuvenate older plants.

  7. Fertilization: Fertilize in early spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates.

  8. Pest and Disease Control: Weigela "Bristol Ruby" is generally resistant to pests and diseases, but it's a good practice to inspect the plant regularly for any signs of issues and treat them promptly if necessary.

  9. Winter Care: In colder regions, you can mulch around the base of the shrub in late fall to help protect the roots from harsh winter conditions.

Weigela florida var. "Bristol Ruby" is a low-maintenance shrub that rewards gardeners with its stunning display of crimson-red flowers and lush green foliage. With proper care and attention, it can thrive and provide a beautiful focal point in your garden.
