Midnight Sun Weigela combines the colors of midnight and the summer sun. The glossy foliage emerges yellow-green with hints of orange before maturing to pinks, purples, and blue-greens. Fall brings colors of oranges and reds. Amongst all this color is the tubular pink flowers that appear each spring. Proven Winners compares this Weigela to a coleus that does not need replanted each year. Prune as needed immediately after flowering.
