Wine and Rose Weigela

Last fall I bought 5 Wine and Rose Weigela for $2 a piece, they were a little wirey and unkept when I got them but I couldn't pass up a deal like that because they Usually sell for between $20-$40. They took longer than most shrubs I own to show any signs of life this spring, but once they did the blooms looked great. After it was done blooming I pruned them back to give them a more compact and fuller look. Once the drought ended this summer and it rained regularly, the shrubs doubled in size and are blooming for a second time this season. I am currently trying to grow more from some cuttings I have from when I pruned them, so hopefully next spring I can add even more of them to the yard.
