Growing & Maintenance Tips for Weigela x 'Strobe'

Your plant needs regular watering to settle into its new home and establish roots. Give your plants a good soaking about once per week, and more often when it’s hot. Keep in mind that plants in containers dry out faster than in the ground. If leaves are wilting or curling, more water is needed. Use a soaker hose or drip system to make watering easier.

Reduce watering and weeding by adding a 2-3 inch layer of organic bark mulch around your plants. You can find this at your local garden center.

Your plant won’t need a lot of fertilizer, but it will benefit from an organic all-purpose fertilizer in the spring when the leaves start to sprout. A fertilizer with a higher middle number will work best.
