If you need a fence, why not make it flower? Red Prince Weigela grows up to 9', with excellent density and multi-branched form perfect for hedges. Beautifully dissected foliage, showing off in stately green and plum-purple, lies behind the bright red, star-shaped flowers. You can expect dozens of branches to be packed with the trumpeting flowers which attract hummingbirds. The foliage of this weigela turns a bit more purple in full sun and is just as showy as the flowers. A bright red autumnal display makes this Weigela a three-season charmer. Excellent branching and attractive form. Weigela florida 'Red Prince'
