The Beautiful Rumba Weigela

  • Impressive, long-blooming flowers and foliage
  • Wildlife interest, Attracts Butterflies & Hummingbirds
  • Adaptive to various soils
  • Tolerates urban conditions

Rumba Weigela, Weigela florida ‘Rumba’, is a deciduous shrub with long-blooming flowers and foliage color. Rumba would be impressively planted en masse in a naturalized area of your home or on a small slope.

Your Rumba Weigela is a delightfully colorful shrub. Even its foliage offers something to the color spectrum. Each 4-inch long, yellow-hued green leaf features a purple-tinted edge and provides a dense backdrop for the colorful flowers. Pollinators and hummingbirds love it!

The bloom begins in June, and what a bloom it is! Your Rumba will be blanketed with trumpet-shaped, hot pink/red blossoms all summer long. The brilliant flowers, accented with yellow throats, diminish in number as the season progresses. However, the flowers will still maintain a strong presence in your yard into September.

It has a dense, rounded nature and no significant disease or insect issues. Rumba prefers full sun for best flowering but can tolerate some light shade. It’s adaptive to a variety of soil types and even does well in urban settings. Under ideal conditions, Rumba will live up to 30 years.

For summer-long interest, even when not in bloom, Rumba Weigela is a terrific choice. Fit one or two of these semi-dwarf shrubs into your landscape today, and enjoy its seasonal impact.
