As a comment about Weigela (Weigela florida Wine & Roses®), mcash70 wrote:

As a garden shrub Wine & Roses is a strong grower with no serious insect or disease problems. Reaching a mature height of four to five feet, it may be easily trimmed to maintain lower height. It can be used as a hedge, as a foundation plant or it can be effectively integrated into a shrub or perennial border to provide season long color. It's also perfect for use in a hummingbird garden or cut flower garden. A light shearing after it blooms in mid-spring will often be rewarded with a second bloom. To achieve its best foliage color it is essential to plant Wine & Roses in full sun. Sunlight brings out the dark pigments that gives Wine and Roses its dark purple leaf color.

Mine is in shade so no wonder I don't get tons of blooms! I'll move it to full sun in very late fall.

@pirl Arlene, I hope moving your Weigela to a sunnier location will improve the shrubs performance for you and you get lots of blooms. Thank you for the Acorn Acorn s! I tip my hat to you.

Thank you for making the comment about sunshine. I can only guess that I was told to put it in shade so now it will grow into its full beauty thanks to you, Margaret.
