General description

Weigela florida ‘Wings of Fire’ was created from an experiment. For curiosity I collected seed of a mutation of Weigela florida 'Caricature', which is a mutation of Weigela florida 'Nana Variegata'. After 2 selection rounds: Weigela florida 'Wings of Fire' has been selected as the best. The colour of the leaves are really striking. The first shoots are green and it quickly obtains a bronze shade which darkens into the summer. In August it is reddish & by September/October the leaves turn beautiful wine-red. 'Wings of Fire' will reach a height of 1.5m in 4 years so 'Wings of Fire' fits perfectly in an ornamental tub on the terrace. 'Wings of Fire' is perfectly hardy over winter. All in all, this is a winner!
