Description

Tango Weigela-Weigela florida ‘Tango’

Greenish purple leaves above and dark green below provide a beautiful color combination with the rosy red flowers. This compact grower works well as a low hedge or as a foundation for larger shrubs. Deciduous. Needs regular watering – weekly, or more often in extreme heat. A distinguished and hardy spring-flowering shrub smothered in red trumpet-shaped flowers with yellow throats which attract hummingbirds. Best in full sun.

Tango Weigela will grow to be about 24 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn’t necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

Tango Weigela makes a fine choice for the outdoor landscape, but it is also well-suited for use in outdoor pots and containers. With its upright habit of growth, it is best suited for use as a ‘thriller’ in the ‘spiller-thriller-filler’ container combination; plant it near the center of the pot, surrounded by smaller plants and those that spill over the edges. Note that when grown in a container, it may not perform as well as in the ground – this is to be expected. Also note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
